Call For Submissions

The Spring 2018 submission deadline is Monday, February 5th. We still accept submissions on a rolling basis: student research articles, essays, and adapted thesis projects are eligible for submission.

Spring 2018 submissions should expect to receive a publication decision in the spring and have their manuscript published in the summer or fall if revisions are returned in a timely manner. The URJ will still have rolling submissions outside of the Spring 2018 deadline; however, we cannot predict decision and publication dates for rolling submissions.
