Arizona Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies

The Arizona Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies is a student-led journal that publishes original undergraduate research from all fields of study, but with a special emphasis on interdisciplinary works that intersect with the humanities, arts, and sciences. In keeping with the University of Arizona’s mission as a public research university, this journal serves as a forum for innovative and diverse research and scholarship. 

First started in 2012, the Arizona Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies was recently revived in 2021, after not publishing since 2017. Our next issue will be published in May of 2022.

The Arizona Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies is published by the University of Arizona Libraries and is generously sponsored by the Office of Research, Innovation, and Impact and the Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry.
