Publishing is something that is on most grad students’ minds right now, even if it’s percolating on the back burner. I’m running through ideas for all my final papers right now, and for every idea I wonder if it’s something I could submit for publication or for a conference. Submitting for publication is nerve-wracking as it is, so knowing that there is a journal like In Progress around is wonderful. This is an online, peer-reviewed journal that is by graduate students and for graduate students.
In Progress publishes pieces from across the disciplines. They encourage pieces that “address aspects of graduate study,” but they also include book reviews and they publish one outstanding graduate research article each year.
They are currently accepting submissions for their second issue, due out in April of 2012. For their submission guidelines and formatting, follow this link. Submissions are due by February 17, 2012 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
