Compass is a student-run publication from New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study. Showcasing student research, Compass strives to publish and archive the best academic and creative work produced by Gallatin students. By sharing original, interdisciplinary research, it is our hope that Compass will enliven and inspire open discourse within the Gallatin community, while strengthening the relationship that our academic community has with communities of learning and activism around the world.
Compass is seeking interdisciplinary, unique academic research papers that have been developed in classes, independently, or from grant-funded research. While there is no page limit, we value concision. We’re currently accepting research paper submissions to email@example.com.
1. Writing Quality: We value papers that are well developed research pieces with a clear writing style. We ask some of the following questions: Is this paper a well-developed research paper with thoughtful analysis and original ideas? Does the paper cite several articles and books? Is the writing clear and easy to understand, with a clear argument/thrust?
2. Topic: We will consider the submission alongside other papers and choose papers that fit well with the other selected pieces and in Compass’s editorial style overall. We value original topics and ideas that make interesting connections or challenge familiar narratives.
