The Gardner-Webb Review is an annual undergraduate research publication sponsored by the Life of the Scholar. This publication encourages and showcases Gardner-Webb University undergraduate scholarship in all disciplines. This journal further strives to foster interaction in philosophy, practice, theory, and research, as well as present topical and contemporary issues to stimulate other theorists and scholars.
Authors of published manuscripts will have been under the mentorship of a faculty member within their specified discipline (usually in a classroom setting). The manuscripts do not have to be current (they can be from past semesters). However, works will be accepted only from students with a recommendation from a faculty mentor. Submissions that do not have a faculty recommendation will not be considered. Please see the “Submission” description for further details on the submission process and requirements.
As the Gardner-Webb Review values the scholarship of all traditional undergraduate students, editors do not consider affiliation or membership to a collegiate organization or honor society while reviewing submissions. Final selections of submissions are made in relation to papers that demonstrate superior research, writing, and analytical skills and regardless of major, minor, or academic program. The journal attempts to include a wide range of topics, depending on submissions received, to reach and inform diverse readers.
Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis and will be published in the current academic year. Submissions are currently being accepted for the 2018-19 academic year.
