They submitted topic proposals and rationale for their selection with their identified learning goals and an outline for approval prior to proceeding. Each draft  was blind reviewed by two peers and final submissions marked by faculty. The top student papers were selected by faculty, and the selected students were given the opportunity to proceed with the official submission to the Open Journal System. 

The final published papers in this collection are the top student submissions and this learning activity was intended to help develop a better overall understanding of the process of publishing work in the Open Journal System as well as strengthen their academic writing. The papers are published in the state they were submitted for grading.
