Publishing Opportunities for Student Scholars

To ensure our students have every opportunity to be recognized for their work on human rights and social justice the HRP has created a comprehensive human rights publication guide. The publication guide offers a complete list of human rights and transitional justice journals from around the world.

For students interested in seeing their work published the publication guide offers detailed information on every journal including submission deadlines and dates, style requirements, contact information of editors, and links to journal websites.

To stay true to the Human Rights Program's commitment to interdisciplinary human rights education the publication guide is broken down by areas of study. Depending on students' areas of expertise and investigation the guide is organized by law reviews, multi-disciplinary journals, and publications that solely publish the work of graduate and undergraduate students.

The Human Rights Program strongly encourages all students to work towards getting articles, papers, and theses published by taking advantage of the wide opportunities for student scholars. To view the publication guide and begin the process of submission follow the link for more information. http://hrp.cla.umn.edu/courses/publications/
