About the Journal
The JRAD (Journal of Research Across the Disciples) is a peer-reviewed, electronic journal dedicated to publishing student research. JRAD serves both to showcase the quality research and writing being conducted in our JU classrooms and to contextualize it within the framework of a larger academic community. Submissions are accepted from all disciplines and in all formats, citation styles, and media (visual, etc.). Many of the publications contained in this journal have also been presented at JU's research symposium.
The Journal would like to thank all of the students who have submitted their work as well as the faculty members who have encouraged careful research and authentic engagement with the academic writing process. Please continue your support by writing, researching, and submitting your work so it can be made visible to the JU community!
Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, but, if you would like to have your work published in this year’s issue, please submit it no later than Friday, May 5.
JRAD: Volume VI
Our sixth volume is an eclectic one: interdisciplinary, multimodal, and of course, it contains some wonderfully written work. Enjoy!
