The Journal of Undergraduate Scholarship

SpliceSplice, The Journal of Undergraduate Scholarship at SDSU College of Arts and Letters, is an anthology of peer-reviewed publications produced by undergraduate students in the Splice Collective. The journal’s goals are to promote research and creativity while providing a space for CAL students to build academic publishing skills.

Splice accepts submissions on a rolling (anytime) basis during the academic year. However, priority for placement in the annual issue, which comes out by May, is given to submissions received in Fall (see 'Call for submissions' for this year's exact date). Works undergo peer review; so those submitted later may not be ready in time to be published this academic year. The call for submissions flyer includes guidelines for formatting and further information. 

To join the Splice Collective – a community of students who are passionate about CAL – just fill in this form. Members of the Collective participate in all aspects of the publication process, including submissions, review process, developmental editing, copy editing, production, and marketing.
