The Department of Justice Studies is excited to announce the development of its first student journal, Themis: A Journal of the Justice Studies Department.
Themis is a professional-quality, peer-reviewed academic journal, publishing SJSU student research in justice studies and forensic science. The journal will feature student research papers and book reviews.
The purpose of Themis is to:
1) Inspire academic research and original writing in justice fields;
2) Instill respect for authorship and the writing and process;
3) Promote scholarly excellence and professionalism;
4) Develop editorial and critical evaluation skills;
5) Provide students a means for publication and recognition of scholarship, and a source of pride in their department;
6) Provide students the experience of peer review: evaluating and critiquing papers for style, clarity, content and accuracy; and line-editing papers for publication.
Themis will be published yearly in April/May, 250 paper copies and electronically, and will contain 10-15 student papers per volume.
The journal website will be launched in late September and will allow for electronic submissions and tracking of the peer review process.
