The Honors Review
is a nationally competitive interdisciplinary journal seeking illuminating, insightful, and contemporary research at the undergraduate level. Students need not be members of Honors Programs to submit papers.
The primary goal of The Honors Review is to give all undergraduates the opportunity to participate in scholarly conversations within their disciplines and to expose them to the dialogue that occurs between a journal and a contributor in editing an article for publication. The Honors Review will provide its authors with the unique chance to receive prompt and personal feedback during the editing process through the use of private online discussion forums.
The Honors Review is also chiefly an online journal. Published authors will receive a print copy of the work as well as a link to the online publication.
All submissions meeting the criteria of the journal will undergo a blind peer review process and receive feedback from a peer editor as well as a faculty referee. This process takes place in multiple stages during which submissions are read and scored by the members of the editorial team as well as faculty referees. Submissions with the highest scores will progress to the subsequent stage. Authors whose submissions reach the final stage, provisional acceptance, will then be paired with an editor, working one on one via forum to make any changes or improvements before publication.
Throughout the process, authors will be able to track their submissions online. This is done confidentially by assigning each work a number as it is received. Authors may then visit the “Track Your Submission” portion of the website in order to check the status of their work.
