New York Journal of Student Affairs

The New York Journal of Student Affairs: The Journal of the College Student Personnel Association of New York State (NYJSA) publishes peer reviewed and open source scholarship that addresses contemporary issues relevant to higher education and the practice of student affairs professionals.

The journal has maintained a consistent mission of being a place for both scholars and practitioners to publish new ideas and best practices that inform the fields of student affairs and higher education. We seek reviewers from a variety of backgrounds who can bring diverse perspectives and expertise to the review process.

To that end, NYJSA has a developmental philosophy and has strived to engage experienced and new authors in the peer reviewed publishing process, to affirm their work, provide constructive feedback, and worked to move their piece to publication, often becoming a place for first time publications. We believe in this mission and believe that there should be a journal that is accessible for all.

Submissions for the Journal – Submissions are accepted continuously (no fixed submission deadlines).

Publishing Schedule – The NYJSA publishing year is January 1–December 31. The online format allows for continuous publishing within the publishing year. Accepted manuscripts will be published online upon completion of the full review process for acceptance.
