The Journal of Undergraduate International Studies (JUIS), based at UW-Madison, is one of only two nationally distributed undergraduate international studies journals in the country. We seek to publish academic articles that give voice to a body of typically unseen, yet thorough and often novel, scholarship.

Our Vision and Mission:

Our peer-reviewed journal seeks to publish the best undergraduate work across the country related to international themes and topics including, but not limited to: international conflict and conflict resolution, human rights, environmental issues, history, comparative politics and economics, development and trade, global security and international health.

We publish a full issue each semester, maintain a website, and communicate with colleges and their scholars around the country to maintain the highest quality of undergraduate work in the area of international studies.

For Madison students, we provide an opportunity to navigate the process of editing and publishing a journal. Students review and rate submissions, decide how to balance a wide variety of issues and academic influences, copyedit and edit submissions, write grant proposals, manage finances, and perform other operations necessary to keep a journal running strong.
