Call For Papers

The Compass accepts scholarly works completed as part of a student's undergraduate curriculum. The scholarly journal also accepts artistic works driven by research that is scholarly in nature. Painting, sculpture, and video theses are examples. These should be accompanied by a written component. Students from all colleges and universities are encouraged to submit.

Submission requirements:

All papers must be formatted in Chicago style with a bibliography. End notes should be included in place of footnotes.

1. Fill out the online Submission Form. Although it is not required, we highly encourage students to have their professor submit a Professor Approval Form to aid the editorial board during the selection and review process. When students have collaborated with other students or a faculty member in the writing and/or research leading to the final paper, all authors must attest to the work being their own and that The Compass has their permission to publish.

2. Email your submission as a word document attachment to The email format is as follows:

– The Subject line of the email should start with "APP:" and should include applicant’s name and paper’s field of study. Ex. “APP: Hanna Lee, Psychology”

– The Body of the email should include a 30 word summary description to be used as a teaser on the website.

– The attachment should be named with applicant’s last name, first name, and title of the paper. Ex. “Lee, Hanna: The Effects of Depression on REM Sleep”

Please note: we will review submissions of any length, but we can only review one submission per applicant per issue.

The application process:

Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. Each submission will be reviewed by a member of the Extended Review Board comprised primarily of current Arcadia faculty. Once a piece has been designated as scholarly by the extended review board, it is then reviewed by at least one member of the Editorial Board, comprised of Arcadia undergraduate students, who will recommend acceptance, acceptance with revisions, or rejection. The decision will then be communicated to the submitter along with any changes that may be required. Additional information may be requested after acceptance including a photo and a short biography.
