Undergraduate Journals

A number of institutions host student-run journals geared toward publishing undergraduate research in political science, international affairs, or the social sciences in general.  Swarthmore students looking to burnish their CVs, especially those potentially interested in graduate school, may want to to submit one of their best research papers – usually after some revision and advice from a faculty member – to one of these journals.  A few options are listed below.
