The University has launched a new academic journal, entitled ‘Insider Imprint’, which features a diverse range of content from first year undergraduates to masters students based in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences.
Insider Imprint is a Life Sciences journal run by PhD students, for undergraduate and masters students. The first issue of the journal was published in April 2018, and officially launched at a special event on campus yesterday (Monday, 14 May).
The journal helps to showcase the wide range of health related research taking place in a modern university and helps support early-career researchers and scholars.
The journal is released as a printed journal, and is also available online. Insider Imprint will be published once a year in the spring.
Dr Fabia Allen, Managing Editor, said: “I am delighted to launch this publication. This is a very important project because it brings together research from across the University, as well providing mentoring and support for new researchers. Our goal was to create a space for undergraduate and masters students to showcase their achievements, to inspire the upcoming generation of students and to support students in becoming confident and competent presenting their work, ideas and experiences.
“We have aimed high for quality, reviewing submissions carefully and implementing a peer-review process for research and literature review articles. A key ethos of the journal is to create a supportive and inclusive space for students to publish – through inviting a diverse range of submissions, holding writing clinics, giving authors a dedicated editor to support them through submission and peer-review and so on.
“As you turn the pages of the first issue, you will find a diverse range of content from first year undergraduates to masters students, taking you on a journey through motivational experiences, embraced opportunities, hard-core research and insightful reflections.”
Professor Blair Grubb, Associate Pro-Vice Chancellor, Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, said: “Insider Imprint is a great opportunity for undergraduate and postgraduate students to develop new skills, whether that be as an author generating research or topical article, or a member of the Editorial Team, receiving, editing, proof reading and generating the publication. These different roles enable students to understand how the scientific peer review process works and the intricacies of journal publication, thus enabling them to demonstrate to prospective employers that they have a highly developed set of work-related skills.”
