About Fields

Fields: journal of Huddersfield student research is a peer reviewed journal developed as part of the 2013-2018 University of Huddersfield Teaching and Learning strategy. The journal features primarily work by undergraduate students but can include occasional postgraduate taught work. The journal will only accept submission from students registered at the University of Huddersfield and will include articles but also welcomes submissions from practice based research which can include poems, designs, music scores, drama productions, case studies etc. Where creative or non-textual work is submitted a short commentary is required. The remit is to support and showcase the best of our student work in terms of research across all the seven Schools that make up the University of Huddersfield. The main aims and objectives include the following:

  • Showcase work that demonstrates significance, rigour and high standards of research
  • An opportunity for students to develop and hone their writing for publication skills and still meet the normal academic standard expected in published journals
  • A space for undergraduates who have undertaken extra-curricular research to present their findings to a wider audience and to the benefit of that audience
  • Promote the development of a community of people exploring ideas through research
  • An effective method of introducing undergraduate students to academic publications

Fields is published annually, in electronic-only format. The journal is fully open access with article processing charges supported by the University of Huddersfield Press. Articles are published under a Creative Commons attribution licence (CC BY), although other more restrictive licences will be considered.
