A Scholarly Publication for Graduate Student Authors

The Student Research Journal (SRJ) is a double-blind peer-reviewed, open access journal based at the School of Information at San José State University, a School within the College of Global and Professional Education. The Journal is developed and led by current graduate students at the School of Information and advised by Dr. Anthony Bernier and the Editorial Advisory Board. The editorial team is comprised of current iSchool students. Authors from all over the world, currently enrolled in any graduate program or institution, are encouraged to submit work relevant to the information science field.

SRJ endeavors to support and encourage student authors to participate in the peer-review and publication processes. We follow a strategic plan that focuses on 1) fostering an engaged community of stakeholders; 2) strengthening the SRJ’s reputation, and communicating the value and opportunity of the SRJ to potential audiences at SJSU and beyond; 3) supporting and growing the SRJ with an effective editorial structure; 4) and producing a rigorous scholarly journal which showcases excellent student scholarship in the field of LIS at SJSU and beyond.
