The University Libraries are pleased to announce the release of a new student-led open access scholarly journal, the Arizona Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies. The journal focuses on interdisciplinary research in the humanities, arts, and sciences and is planned as an annual publication that will be available in both print and online formats. For its inaugural issue the journal focuses on themes relating to Arizona and the border region due to their importance in the state’s Centennial year.

In keeping with the University of Arizona’s mission as a public research university, this journal will continue to serve as a forum for innovative scholarship and research on the region. The Arizona Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies (AZJIS) was created by UA undergraduate students Lauren Johnston and Emma Kleiner, who serve as co-editors-in-chief.

The journal is supported by both the Confluencenter for Creative Inquiry and the UA Office of Student Affairs. The first print issues are being distributed on April 25th, 2012 in conjunction with the Confluencenter grand opening. The online edition, hosted by the University Libraries, can be accessed at: https://journals.uair.arizona.edu/index.php/azjis/index
The University Libraries publishes several online journals that promote the dissemination of scholarly information, including Radiocarbon, Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections, Journal of Political Ecology, and Journal of Methods and Measurements in the Social Sciences.
