Got an exciting term paper? Wish you were published? Looking for a way to get your arguments heard?
S.C.O.U.T. B.A.N.A.N.A., in conjunction with Michigan State University's African Studies Center and Office of International Development, invites you to submit a manuscript to Articulate: Undergraduate Scholarship Applied to International Development.
Articulate is a new undergraduate scholarly journal that publishes academic papers and writings (research papers, field work, interviews, etc.) on issues in international development, focusing primarily on African studies and healthcare issues. Articulate seeks to educate, motivate, and activate the public about its mission and vision working towards solutions for Africa's healthcare crisis.
Our journal focuses on relationships between development, foreign aid, health care and Africa. Articulate is a forum for students to contribute to, as well as make, the debates in international development. Undergraduate students remain a vital, untapped force that can bring new ideas, perspectives, and concepts into the development dialogue. Our goal is to spark, share, and spread knowledge to create innovative change now.
Articulate is peer-reviewed by an editorial committee consisting of undergraduates and a faculty advisor. Editorial decisions are based on relevance, quality, and originality. We ask for submissions that are roughly 10-15 pages long, preferably in Chicago Manual Style. In addition, we ask that the author's name, major, college, and university appear on a separate cover sheet, with no reference to the author within the manuscript.
Potential topics, include, but are not limited to:
The effectiveness of foreign aid
Intersections of gender, ethnicity, and sexuality in African development
Comparative studies of healthcare systems
Ethics and development in African countries
Land rights reform/redistribution as a development policy
Historical analyses of development programs in Africa
Politics of water in Africa
The role of African youth in development programs and projects
Effects of conflict and forced migration on healthcare and development
Deadline for submission: February 29th @ 5pm. For submissions or more information, please contact the editor in chief, Monica Mukerjee at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on S.C.O.U.T.B.A.N.A.N.A., check out www.scoutbanana.org
