Before submitting your article, ensure that your article follows our submissions guidelines. Articles that do not adhere to our submissions guidelines may not be considered for publication.

*Due to 11.2's separate priority and regular submission dates (which were created to account for COVID-19), JOURNYS will have to defer non-priority submitted articles to 12.1, which will be published in the 2020-2021 academic year. The deferred papers will be determined by variety of content and word count. We cannot accept papers above word count, we can only defer or reject them, even if they are a priority submission. There are no exceptions to word count. While we do not have article requirements, JOURNYS is looking for more research reviews, OP-eds, and DIYS.

The 11.2 submission deadline has passed.

The 12.1 submission portal will open soon for the 2020-2021 academic year. Its deadline will be around September 2020.
