Graduate Student Journal About Graduate Study, 2/17/2012
In Progress (inprogressjournal.net) is currently seeking submissions for its second issue, scheduled for release on April 20, 2012. All submissions fitting the mission of In Progress will be considered.
In Progress is a peer reviewed, online journal that aims to address issues affecting graduate students across the academic disciplines. Because there are few opportunities for graduate students to interact with and learn from each other outside of our own departments and universities, this journal was conceived as a place for graduate students and faculty to share information and insights regarding all aspects of the often-mystified process of graduate study and beyond into civic discourses and social activism.
In Progress accepts submissions from graduate students and faculty from all disciplines in a variety of formats. We encourage submitters to choose formats most fitting for the topic addressed, whether these take conventional approaches such as discourse analysis, critical race theory, queer theory, feminisms, rhetorical analysis, qualitative or quantitative studies and research methods, etc., or unconventional approaches such as written or recorded conversation, narratives, multimedia presentations, visual or literary art, etc.
Although most submissions should address aspects of graduate study such as application, coursework, student/faculty relations, research, publication, graduate work within/ across disciplines, examinations, and dissertation, and/ or graduate work and activism outside of the academy, we also publish one outstanding graduate research article per year in order to promote graduate student scholarship.
In addition to article submissions, we are now accepting book review submissions. Reviewed books should be useful to a broad range of disciplines. If the book does not seem to meet this criterion, the review should make an argument for its interdisciplinary relevance. Reviews of books on graduate studies and reviews that connect the book to the author's own graduate work are especially encouraged. Please limit book reviews to 1500 words.
