Benefits of Getting Involved with the Student Research Journal

Published: April 24, 2019 by Havilah Steinman

Earlier in the semester, managing editor of the Student Research Journal Rachel Greggs, hosted an event alongside the American Library Association Student Chapter about the incredible benefits of getting involved with the Student Research Journal. First and foremost, the SRJ offers a fantastic publishing opportunity. The peer-reviewed and double-blind journal is completely run by students under the guidance of faculty advisor, Dr. Anthony Bernier. SRJ currently accepts critical essays, evidence summaries and book reviews. Anyone from a North American or international institution is invited to submit, but submissions from iSchool students are especially encouraged because of the fantastic benefits students glean in the peer-reviewed process.
