Essex Student Journal


Essex Student Journal is an online multi-disciplinary academic journal, run by and for University of Essex students. The journal is dedicated to the publication of high-quality undergraduate and postgraduate writing and is committed to creating accessible and engaging content for a non-specialist readership. Essex Student Journal encourages and celebrates student research by offering valuable early experience of academic publishing and the peer review process.

Essex Student Journal is located in Library Services. We changed the name of the journal from ESTRO to Essex Student Journal. Soon we will be launching the publishing platform and accepting articles, research papers and case studies.

Access to the journal is free. We accept coursework submissions relating to any subject area studied within the University.


We are currently holding off submissions for Essex Student Journal. However, we will accept the below types of submissions soon:

  • academic articles relating to any subject area studied within our University
  • academic research papers
  • case studies

There is no deadline; the journal operates a rolling submissions programme and articles are published online when ready.

Submissions may include original work or course work for which you have received a particularly good mark.

Essex Student Journal requires all submission to conform to our Style Guide. If your work has previously been submitted to your department under different style guidelines, you will need to reformat it before submission to the journal.

Submissions should be sent via our platform.

We expect that submissions will not be under consideration or previously published with another publication.

We would ask those submitting to follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook – it will help us keep in touch more easily.


Essex Student Journal is always looking for competent and enthusiastic reviewers. If you are interested in becoming part of the review team, please register through our platform.
