Focus and Scope

Our Mandate
The WAGS Undergrad Journal is a student-run initiative offering a site of publication to undergrad students. As an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal, we seek to present a wide, interdisciplinary collection of academic and creative works that relate to broadly-defined conceptions and experiences of feminism, racialization, sexuality, and disability. We offer an academic and artistic forum to an increasingly unheard body of students who have enormous critical and expressive capacity.

Peer Review Process

Our process is double-blind. One member of the editorial board will assign each of the papers a number for identification purposes. Then, the papers – free of any identifying information – will be passed on to the editorial board. Each paper will be sent to two members of the board via e-mail. Editors will edit for content, grammar and structure. Editors then reveal their assessments of their papers to the rest of the board. We will then send conditionally-accepted papers back to you with changes and suggestions. The editorial board will make themselves available for any questions and help you may need in the editing process.

If you do not submit the revised product by the assigned deadline, we will not be able to include your paper in the final issue.

Under no condition will your identity be revealed to any of the editors until after publication.

 

Publication Frequency

We currently publish on an annual basis, in the spring of each year. In the future we may release issues biannually.

 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

 

Archiving

This journal utilizes the LOCKSS system to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries and permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration. More...
