Student Research Journal

The BILT Student Research Journal was pioneered by BILT Student Fellow Emily Kinder in 2019 to showcase student research and give students the opportunity to run and contribute to an academic journal.

Formed in 2017, BILT’s mission is to inspire education innovation across the University and champion students as co-creators and researchers; of which the Student Research Journal plays a vital part. BILT employs a team of Student Fellows annually to work on different project themes, one of which is the production and creation of the Student Research Journal. The Student Fellow editor for the 2023/24 journal is Carla Forster.

BILT’s Student Research Journal is an online, peer-reviewed journal, dedicated to the encouragement of students and the wider academic community to value student research through the publication of high-quality student research. All articles are subject to thorough peer-review, after making it past a competitive selection process.

The journal publishes outstanding work from across the University’s six faculties, highlighting the diversity and breadth in the work of Bristol students, and enables valuable professional experience in reading and editing submissions, carrying out the peer-review process and preparing papers for publication, for the all-student publication board.

We hope the journal will encourage students to see themselves as researchers and promote the view that they are valued members of the academic community at the University of Bristol.
