Scholarly Publishing

Information and resources relating to the entire scholarly publication cycle with a focus on open access

Want to start a student journal?

The Adelphi University Libraries can help you launch and manage a student journal. Contact Prof. Chris Barnes, Digital Publishing Librarian, to start a conversation about possibilities.

Initial considerations:

  • Will this be a scholarly publication which employs peer review and references, or a popular one, like a magazine or newsletter?
  • What is the mission of the publication or the reason you believe it should exist?
  • Is there at least one faculty member willing to serve as an advisor to the publication?
  • Are students from multiple years interested in serving on the editorial board so that the publication will last beyond the initial issue?
  • Who can submit works to be published: Adelphi majors or graduate students in a certain field, any Adelphi student, any student currently enrolled in an academic program?
  • How often will you publish an issue and what kinds of pieces will be included: research articles, book reviews, creative writing, artworks, opinion pieces, etc.?
