Fields Journal

Submissions are now open for the third volume of Fields: Journal of Huddersfield Student Research.

Staff can encourage students to submit their research to the online journal publishing outstanding peer reviewed work to the world.

“Having my research published in Fields has been the pinnacle of my achievements, particularly as I am a mature student working full-time with a young family. It has enabled me to finally believe in my own abilities as a writer and researcher, as well as raising my professional status in my workplace.” (Student published in Fields)

What is Fields?

Fields gives students the opportunity to take their work and ideas further than coursework. It provides the chance to be part of an academic community exploring new ideas through research. 

The online journal is published and available on the University of Huddersfield Press open access platform. Fields includes articles but also other formats appropriate to research in different disciplines including poems, music, animation, performance, garments, websites and practice based research. Work in a form other than written material should be accompanied by a short written commentary. 

The journal encourages authors to:

  • aspire to the highest academic standards
  • learn how to present work to a professional standard
  • respond to a challenging and stimulating goal

How can students get involved?

All students on taught courses can submit and tutors are encouraged to nominate outstanding work. Funding will be available to help selected students.

The first stage of selection will be undertaken at School level in June/July, mostly based on work submitted for assessment. Fields is aimed primarily at undergraduate students but a maximum of one of the three items submitted from each school may be a piece of Postgraduate taught work.

School Panels will shortlist work and advise on revisions prior to submission to the University Editorial Board for FIELDS which will then make the final selection of work to be published.
