About the Journal

Mission and Scope

The TWU Student Journal (TWUSJ) is a faculty-led interprofessional publication devoted to sharing new writing and research by TWU students.  TWUSJ is an open-access, editor-reviewed scholarly publication that provides opportunities for students to disseminate original scholarly and creative works to worldwide audiences via the Open Journal Systems (OJS), and to gain mentored experience with peer review and other journal production processes, contributing to professional preparation. 

As TWU is historically a woman’s university as well as a Hispanic serving institution, the journal is a unique venue and we encourage the submission of works by and about women, people of color, and other minoritized populations. We expressly support the TWU Purpose, Mission, Vision, Values & Principles as guiding statements for this publication.
