"A Journal of Interdisciplinary Thought"

Intersections is an academic journal sponsored by UVU's Integrated Studies Department. It provides exemplary students from multiple disciplines the opportunity to publish in a peer-edited journal. Intersections is written, edited, and designed by UVU students and published each Spring.

Submitting An Article For Publication

Each team makes its own decisions about what will be published. As a rule, publications come from Integrated Studies students who have written their Senior Thesis or students who are engaged in interdisciplinary research/writing. If you're interested in submitting something, contact Mark Olson at 801.863.5888 or via email at:

Submission Guidelines

• Submissions should include a short statement (no more than 300 words) demonstrating the interdisciplinary nature of the work.

• Submissions may include artwork, poetry, creative non-fiction, or essays.

• There is no limit on the number of submissions by authors.

• Written submissions are limited to 4,500 words, exclusive of the bibliography.

• Because this is an interdisciplinary journal, authors may use any citation style appropriate to their discipline.

• The submission deadline for 2015 is February 15th.

Publication in Intersections is competitive. Publication decisions by the editorial staff shall be final.

Getting Involved as an Editor

Why get involved in the publication of Intersections? It's a great way to add some practical experience to your resume or vita. You'll become familiar with the process of choosing academic papers that are submitted, determining which ones will most perfectly show the integration of multiple disciplines. You'll learn to work with an editorial staff and how to make submissions conform to publication standards. Finally, many Intersections teams do the technical layout and design by themselves and this knowledge (using tools like Adobe InDesign, Quark, and Photoshop) is highly marketable.
