Concordia students launch interdisciplinary student journal with mentorship opportunities

Concordia University students have launched a new interdisciplinary journal called EconomicSense for undergraduate researchers. The journal—which will accept submiss will help undergraduate researchers learn the ins and outs of scholarly publishing. EconomicSense accepts submissions from Concordia students who are exploring questions through an economic lens. Submitters are then paired with mentors from industry and academia to guide them through the research and writing process over a four-month period. “Our goal with EconomicSense was not just to give students a platform to write new research but also to teach them how to do it,” said Concordia economics student and journal co-founder Rayan Mohamed. “This is why we integrated a mentorship program.”
