Why Publish? 

 

Students earning degrees in the field of history are strongly encouraged to publish the work they do while in their academic program. The reasons for submitting work for publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Publication credits can be added to your resume or curriculum vitae for use in obtaining jobs, internships, and assistantships.
  • Publication credits are a great benefit when  applying for graduate programs.
  • You can build upon work you have already done for previous classes, digging deeper into topics and adding to the historiography.
  • Research done as an undergraduate can be the foundation of your Master's thesis once you are in a graduate program.
     

 

Shippensburg University offers students a unique opportunity to publish research through the Write the Ship annual journal.  For more information about Write the Ship please see Write the Ship
