Call for Submissions: The Mirror
The Mirror, Canada’s oldest undergraduate history journal is looking for paper submissions for its next edition ! The Mirror is published at Western University, but editors encourage submissions, and frequently publish papers, from all Canadian universities. Each year the journal contains undergraduate essays covering a wide range of historical topics, as well as historiography papers and book reviews. The overall quality of essays submitted, along with the number of submissions, increases each year. As such, having a paper published in The Mirror is a considerable accomplishment. Publication is an excellent opportunity to have your work read by members of Canada’s historical community, and The Mirror is archived in the National Library and Archives in Ottawa. It also looks fantastic on a resume, c/v, or application for graduate studies.
Original copies (with professor’s comments and final grade visible) are required. Anyone who lives outside of London, however, is more than welcome to mail a photocopy of their essay(s). Electronic copies are not preferred, but will be accepted in certain cases. The deadline for submitting essays is 7:00 PM on Tuesday, November 10, 2015, and publication decisions will be made by the end of the month of November. All authors, regardless of the end result, will be notified as soon as these decisions are made. For more information, you can contact The Mirror at firstname.lastname@example.org.
