The Tulane Journal of Policy and Political Economy, a student-run publication focused exclusively on undergraduate research, is guided by this principle.
Founded in early 2020 by six Tulane undergraduates, the journal has grown from a passion project into an internationally recognized publication. Managed by a staff of 72 Tulane students and professors, the journal combines a rigorous peer-review process — including a review panel of 50 Tulane faculty — with a national outreach program to connect with undergrads throughout the global academic community.
After a year of work, the journal released its inaugural edition in early 2021, receiving 82 submissions from 38 universities across four continents. Featuring research on topics ranging from Eastern European cybersecurity to reproductive health policy, this volume has been indexed in the Library of Congress and is available both digitally and in print.
