The Yale Undergraduate Journal of Economics and Politics is a new interdisciplinary publication from Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. We publish articles related to economics and political science, and we seek submissions from academics, professionals and students from around the world. Our editorial board is currently in the process of soliciting pieces for our inaugural edition, to be released in November of this year, and we respectfully request that you notify students on your campus about the opportunity to place their scholarship in our journal.
Opportunities for students to publish scholarship are few and far between, even though they author a sizable amount of high-quality research. We believe that students should be given a fair shot to publish the work they produce, as published work can give students a big leg up in the hunt for fellowships, internships, and jobs.
Our journal reaches a wide audience. With an online format that will be easily accessible worldwide, we will provide a unique platform for authors to share their ideas with readers at universities, think tanks, and government agencies. When we release our issue this fall, we will send a copy out to academic departments and organizations around the country in order to maximize the exposure of our author’s work.
The Yale Undergraduate Journal of Economics and Politics accepts submissions of any length, as long as the subject matter is topical. Possible submissions could include research papers, essays, articles, and theses, written for either a class or an independent project.
The deadline to submit a paper for our fall issue is October 14th, 2016, and we ask authors to submit their work via our website, YaleUJEP.com.
