Undergraduate Journals

One of the most significant outcomes of the rise of undergraduate research in the UK is the large number of academic journals devoted to publishing research conducted and written up by undergraduate students. Many of these journals are multi-disciplinary and closely-tied to one institution (such as  Diffusion). However, there are specialist journals (such as the Journal of Qualitative Sports Science) and journals which accept papers from all students, whatever their university (such as Reinvention). The links below take you to some of the journals that we like to read. If you are the editor of an undergraduate journal not listed here, let us know!
