Call For Submissions

The Spring 2020 submission deadline is Monday, February 3. We still accept submissions on a rolling basis: student research articles, essays, and adapted thesis projects are eligible for submission.

Fall 2019 submissions should expect to receive a publication decision by the spring and have their manuscript published in the spring or summer if revisions are returned in a timely manner. The URJ will still have rolling submissions outside of the Fall 2019 deadline; however, we cannot predict decision and publication dates for rolling submissions.
