Submitting to the Journeys

Journeys Magazine We at Journeys welcome submissions and news items from students, faculty, staff and alumni. Our publications represent our College from top to bottom and all fields of experience, interest and success, and we hope to show our friends, our community and the world the strength of our diversity.

PUBLICATION DATES: Fall semester and Spring semester.

Submission Policy

Submitting written material: All articles, news, events and photographs submitted to the editor must include the author's name, academic unit address and telephone number for verification and contact purposes.  We reserve the right to edit any submissions and make corrections, omit material, or do minor reorganization as required to achieve a reasonably consistent look and feel to the submitted work. If major revisions are required Journeys' editor(s) will rewrite it and give the author an opportunity to review the changes.

The Journeys editor reserves the right to reject any submissions for any reason. Articles not published do not reflect badly on the quality of the submitted material but rather on it being too redundant with existing articles or the submission deadline has been missed or because of space shortage in the layout of the publication. We will not publish anything that we consider libelous or that does not meet our requirements. We do not guarantee when, where, or even if an article will appear in Journeys eNewsletter or on its accompanying web site(s).
