Call for submissions: The New Scholar (Leiden Student Journal of Humanities)

9 March 2023

Have you written a great paper? Your teacher praised it – but now it is just lying around, catching virtual dust on a hard drive? 

Did you know that, even as a BA or MA student, you can publish a paper like that? You can submit it to a peer-reviewed journal. Then everyone fascinated by the same questions can learn from you and get inspiration for their own research. 

To make publishing easy for you, we are launching a special project, supported by a prestigious Comenius Programme Senior grant. It is called The New Scholar: Leiden Student Journal of Humanities. The New Scholar will be entirely composed of papers (and academic works in other media formats, such as posters or video essays) by students of all programs at the Faculty of Humanities. It is an open-access online journal, dedicated to showcasing Leiden's pioneering interdisciplinary and intercultural exchange of ideas. For more details, please go to our website: https://universiteitleiden.nl/thenewscholar

This is an open call for submissions to the inaugural first issue of The New Scholar, to be published in June 2023! We welcome academic works in any format and on any topics in the Humanities, including papers of up to 8000 words (not counting references and bibliography). Submissions should be in English, Dutch, Spanish or German, accompanied by an English abstract. They may or may not be based on university assignments. Optionally, also include a short bio: authors must be current students or recent graduates (of max. 1 year) of our Faculty. All submissions will be double-blind peer-reviewed by researchers at the Faculty and edited by our team.

Please email your submission to us at comeniusjournal@hum.leidenuniv.nl. The deadline is 31 March 2023, and we are ready to receive your work immediately. Also do not hesitate with any questions or suggestions. We look forward to creating a strong first issue together. 

Yours sincerely,
