Indiana University South Bend Graduate Research Journal

The Graduate Research Journal is a multidisciplinary journal specifically for graduate students. The goal of the Journal is to publish the best research and/or critical graduate work produced at IU South Bend every year.

Although some graduate journals produce creative work, these submissions should be sent to our literary journal on campus, Analecta.

We provide opportunities for academic and professional experience through the peer review and editing process done by graduate students, as well as marketing and advertising experience through the promotion of submissions and our end-of-the-year release party.


As a multidisciplinary journal, participants have the opportunity to engage with ideas and work outside of their fields, which promotes the exchange of perspectives among academic disciplines within the campus.

The Graduate Research Journal will be accepting applications for Associate Editors and Readers until December 1. All interested applicants should email

We will begin accepting submissions as early as the fall semester. Our submission deadline will be February 2.
