The Journal for Intersectional Social Justice is a student-led initiative with the purpose of highlighting the umbrella of topics under “social justice”. This includes, and is not limited to; climate change, gender equality/feminism, queer rights, anti-racism, decolonization practices, marginalized communities visibility, etc. The purpose of the journal is to create an academic space for students, undergraduate and postgraduate, to submit research related to the topic of social justice. The journal focuses on this topic specifically, however it is open to a multidisciplinary cohort of submissions. This is to mean that the journal will accept submissions from any field of study, so long as they pertain to a research topic within social justice. The JISJ is unique in that it operates in a new field of academia, bringing academia to the consumable public. JISJ aims to promote academia in a digestible and relatable manner through social platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. The JISJ believes that academia should be accessible to all and tackle the issue of gatekeeping and accessibility within the field. The JISJ runs two sister publications, the academic journal the Journal of Intersectional Social Justice, and our online blog publication Intersections.

The Journal publishes student essays in the course of a degree or independent research projects. Current university students may submit as well as former students.
