One of my interests and missions as an economics professor is to provide guidance for my students, whether graduate or undergraduate, who are interested in publishing their work in an academic journal.
My guidance includes suggested journals and tips on how to successfully navigate the peer review and publication processes.
Here are some benefits of publishing your work:
Gain experience with the peer-review process that will be beneficial if you plan on pursuing an advanced degree.
Publications can be added to your resume or LinkedIn page.
Share your work with the world! Even as an undergrad, you can engage in and write about impactful original research that people far and wide may want to know about.
Examples of suggested undergraduate journals:
(Discipline: Business and Economics)
Journal for Global Business and Community
Agricultural & Applied Economics Association - https://www.aaea.org/membership/sections/ss-aaea/ss-aaea-journal
“The Journal for Global Business and Community is a multidisciplinary e-journal dedicated to serving those participating in and affected by the global economy. It offers undergraduate students a venue for publishing works that explores the functional dimensions of global business organizations and discusses relationships between these businesses and the global economy."
“The SS-AAEA journal consists of agricultural economics articles written and submitted by undergraduate students to the annual AAEA undergraduate paper competition. The Journal provides an excellent opportunity for students to list a professional publication on their resume. The articles are considered of peer-reviewed quality in that they are reviewed by established researchers and are deemed to address an important topic using appropriate scientific methodology.”
