We are delighted to let you know that the first issue of the International Journal for Students as Partners (IJSaP) was launched on 8th May 2017 at the International Summer Institute on Students as Partners at McMaster University, Canada (https://macblog.mcmaster.ca/summer-institute/).
The journal, which is hosted by McMaster University Library Press, is co-edited by students and staff/faculty from Australia, Canada, the UK, and the US.
In Issue 1 https://mulpress.mcmaster.ca/ijsap you will find an editorial, an opinion piece, 4 research articles, 3 reflective essays, 4 case studies, and 2 book reviews. Together these contributions have been written by 21 students and 28 staff/faculty from four different countries.
If you enjoy this first issue we hope you will support the journal in a variety of ways including:
- Writing for the journal in any of the genres we publish. Please contact us with your ideas. We encourage you to send us (firstname.lastname@example.org) your proposals for articles, case studies, or reflective pieces before you submit them.
