Applications Open for Editors of Asian American Research Journal

The Asian American Research Journal (AARJ) is accepting AARJ general editor applications for the 2022-2023 academic year. Applicants must be a UC Berkeley undergraduate or graduate student for the Fall 2022-Spring 2023 academic year. 

AARJ is sponsored by UC Berkeley’s robust Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies program and the Asian American Research Center. AARJ publishes annually in the spring. It’s the first journal at UC Berkeley that provides a platform for research and scholarly work centered on Asian American and Asian Diasporic experiences, identities, and communities. 

The journal is dedicated to uplifting and empowering undergraduate and graduate students and accepts works that facilitate discourse on Asian American issues. By providing a platform that empowers students to share their academic work, AARJ is continuing the fight fought by those in the TWLF strikes by combating academic gatekeeping against people of color. 

Journal editors will provide edits on grammatical/factual errors, theme, and content; work on a team led by an executive editor and pair up with other general editors; commit to 10-15 hours (in total) for the Spring 2023 semester; and must participate in training, review meetings, asynchronously editing submissions, etc.

The deadline for this application is Monday, November 28, 2022, at 11:59pm. Late submissions will not be accepted. There is an informational session on Tuesday, Nov. 1 from 7-8pm! Join the Zoom here.
