Call for Papers

The Institute for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies at Webster University is currently soliciting undergraduate research papers and book reviews for possible publication in the 2014-15 issue of Righting Wrongs: A Journal of Human Rights. Entering its fifth year, Righting Wrongs is a peer-reviewed academic journal that provides space for students to explore human rights issues, challenge current actions and frameworks, and engage in problem-solving aimed at tackling some of the world’s most pressing issues.

The fifth open issue of Righting Wrongs will be published online in May 2015. (December issues feature selected senior theses and book reviews from Webster University students.) The blind peer-review process will be conducted by student editors and reviewers at Webster University, under the supervision of faculty advisors. Submissions are accepted from undergraduate students at universities around the world. Submissions are not accepted from graduate students, and papers must be written in English.

To submit a paper or review for possible publication in Righting Wrongs, please e-mail your submission as a Word document attachment to humanrights@webster.edu. Research papers should include a full paper, bibliography, a 100-word abstract, and a brief author(s) biography. Also, papers must be formatted according to American Psychological Association (APA) style guidelines. Reviews should focus on books about human rights issues and debates.

The deadline for submissions is January 5, 2015. Authors should receive a decision no later than March 2015. For more information and writing resources, please visit the Righting Wrongs web site at www.webster.edu/rightingwrongs.
