San Jose State University Open Access Week Un/Conference


Interest in student peer-reviewed open-access journals is beginning to grow. Our presentation will explore what it takes to produce such a journal and what it delivers in terms of student experience. We begin with an overview of the value of student research. We will also address student involvement in the Scholarly Communication process, as presented in ACRL's publication Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy. We will look at three OA peer-reviewed student journals: Illinois Wesleyan University's Undergraduate Economic Review, Macalester College's Tapestries: Interwoven Voices of Local and Global Identities, and Indiana University's Illuminare: A Student Journal in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism Studies.
