Would you like to gain some experience of writing for a peer-reviewed journal in a supportive, friendly, student-led environment?

We invite submissions of reflective pieces and book reviews from both undergraduates and post-graduates across the social sciences. The reflective pieces may include blogs, op-eds, fieldwork experiences, work placement experiences, and any related topic which may prove to be of interest to students across the SWDTP universities.

Submission Structure

The word limit is 1,000 words for reflective pieces and 2,000 words for book reviews. A cover note including an abstract of your article should be included.

Co-authored submissions will be accepted.

Peer Review

The editorial review process will be coordinated by the editorial team. Each submission will be considered upon receipt to determine whether it might be appropriate for inclusion in the journal. We will contact successful authors as soon as possible.


All submissions should be emailed to editor@theopenreview.com
