Student Research Journal


Student Research Journal

Launched in 2010, the San José State University School of Information Student Research Journal promotes graduate scholarship and intellectual inquiry in the fields of library and information science, archives, records management, and museum studies by publishing two peer-reviewed, open-access issues annually.  The journal accepts contributions from graduate students attending any university, and invites contributions authored by LIS faculty. As San José State University’s first student-governed research journal, student editors review, select, and edit manuscripts, develop and publish each issue of the SRJ.

The SRJ is available online and maintains a global readership. By submitting work for publication, graduate students have the unique opportunity to showcase academic research and scholarship, contributing to the knowledge base of archive and information professions. The journal serves as a resource for the research community and provides a variety of benefits for students. Such as:

  • Participation in a peer-review process
  • The opportunity to receive high-quality feedback on manuscripts
  • Increased academic writing skills
  • Global reach and promotion of their published manuscripts
  • Contribution to LIS scholarship
