The Atrium: A Journal of Academic Voices
contact email: 

The times they are a changing. Students have questions. Do we have answers? Does academic freedom give us the right to .... ? Academic voices can often create divergence, difficulties, disputes, and unending digressions within disciplines, but what real differences do our voices make to our students and our colleagues and our world?

The Atrium invites you to submit innovative, creative and critical narrative essays, research-based articles across the disciplines, poetry, and book/website reviews. We share best practices with colleagues with the aim of making a difference in the lives of students and fellow faculty at colleges and universities around the world.

We do not accept previously-published material. Please do not submit sections of your thesis or dissertation. Articles may be as brief as 400 word vignettes, but should be limited to no more than 5,000 words.

The Atrium has published consistently twice annually since 2010. To view our current and archived issues, to read the current submission guidelines, and to submit your work, please go to .

The Atrium is not your run-of-the-mill academic journal! It is a unique, peer-reviewed, cross-disciplinary electronic journal that engages readers around the world. Articles are published from faculty at two- and four-year colleges who seek to share their best ideas. Submission deadline for our Fall 2016 issue is July 1, 2016.
