The Compass is an online scholarly journal run by students in Arcadia University’s Honors Program. It is dedicated to providing a platform for undergraduate research and insight so that it may inspire, intrigue, and inform an audience. Submissions from all disciplines are welcome and are accepted on a rolling basis. The 2019 deadline for the upcoming issue is September 1. Only work done as an undergraduate student is considered.

Submission Process:

Fill out the online submission form at: tinyurl.com/compassi7

Email your submission as a word document attachment to thecompass@arcadia.edu.
**Papers are preferred to be in Chicago style, but they may be submitted in any citation style. If a paper is chosen, an editor will work with the author to change the format to Chicago style.

Email Format:

– 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.

Each submission will be reviewed by a member of the External Review Board, which is comprised of Arcadia University faculty. If a paper is deemed scholarly by them, it will then be reviewed by the Editorial Board, comprised of undergraduate students from Arcadia. They will then determine if the paper will be accepted, accepted with revisions, or rejected, and the decision will be communicated to the author along with any required changes. Additional information may be requested if accepted, including a photo and a short biography.
