Welcome to the University of St Andrews journal hosting service provided by the University Library. This service uses Open Journal Systems to support the publishing process, including submission, peer-review and online publication.

Latest journal to be launched January 2014: Syria Studies
Welcome to Syria Studies, the official online journal of the Centre for Syrian Studies (CSS) at the University of St. Andrews. Syria Studies is a peer reviewed and indexed journal that has previously been published in hard form. We are proud to include on our Board of Reviewers some of the most renowned authorities on Syria.
The aim of Syria Studies is to provide a space for scholars and students to publish work focused on the study of modern and contemporary Syria (history, politics, economy, & society). Given the interdisciplinary nature of Syria Studies, high-quality submissions from various academic and professional backgrounds are encouraged. -- Raymond Hinnebusch, Director of CSS
Aporia is the journal of the St Andrews Philosophy Society.
"Aporia" stands for philosophical puzzlement, and Plato's dialogues are called "aporetic" since they often end with the interlocutor finding himself confused about the meaning of a concept that he had previously thought he knew, like virtue or courage.
Ethnographic Encounters was founded in 2011 by Zoe Miller, Emily Sheppard and Dr. Craig Lind. It is an undergraduate e-journal which provides a platform for the work of the Social Anthropology students of the University of St Andrews. The e-journal’s main aim is that of publishing research projects conducted by students in their second year of study. Additionally, the publication promotes visual and other experimental expressions of ethnographic interest.
The e-journal is intended to present the work of the University of St Andrews’ undergraduate Social Anthropology students for two main audiences. In the first instance, Ethnographic Encounters presents a valuable resource for future students to draw on the experience and insights of their predecessors. In the second instance, Ethnographic Encounters offers a means for Social Anthropology students throughout the world to engage with their peers in St Andrews, establish new connections, share ideas and to begin to engage in an exchange of knowledge that is fundamental to the discipline.
Our newest section, 'Inspired by Ethnographic Encounters', aims to give students the opportunity to publish their work without restricting them to only submitting second-year ethnographic projects. Our goal in doing this is to create a space where we can reflect on the creative aspects of Social Anthropology in St Andrews, as well as to broaden the subject areas included in the journal.
Potential contributors are warmly invited to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.We are thankful for the support given to us by University of St Andrews' Social Anthropology Department: http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/anthropology/
