About the Journal
Focus and Scope
The Journal for Undergraduate Ethnography (JUE) is an online publication for undergraduate academic writing. The JUE seeks to publish original ethnographic research by undergraduate students working in a variety of disciplines. Our goal is to bring readers insights into subcultures, practices, and social institutions. We expect crossovers with anthropology, sociology, urban studies, and area studies, as well as programs in education, design, or management.
Peer Review Process
Each manuscript will be reviewed by one member of the Senior Editorial Board. Authors' identities are not blinded.
The Journal for Undergraduate Ethnography is normally published twice a year.
Open Access Policy
The JUE is an Open Access journal that provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. We want to maximize exposure and distribution for our authors. There are no access costs to readers and no publication costs to authors. However, to protect authors' intellectual work we use a strict Creative Commons license that allows others to download works and share them as long as they credit the authors, but they can‘t change the works in any way or use them commercially. Authors retain the right to grant other permissions.
