Live Ideas Journal
NOW OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS! Submit by January 15, 2018 to be considered for publication in our inaugural edition!
Live Ideas is the open-access, peer-reviewed undergraduate journal of Kansas State University’s Primary Texts Certificate program. It is co-produced by students and faculty at K-State and is published online quarterly (Oct. 1, Dec. 1, Feb. 15, Apr. 1). Our reason for founding and organizing Live Ideas was that we wanted to create a credible academic source that focuses on publishing the work of undergraduate students.
The mission is to provide a platform from which undergraduates can express their original ideas or add to the conversations of existing ideas in creative, unbounded, and meaningful ways. However, a journal will not be influential unless it is read. In the age of social media, blog posts, and “fake news,” we strove to create a place where academic content and ideas could be brought forth and presented in an accessible and engaging format. To do so, we decided to break away from the traditional journal format by providing a new and exciting journal that published multiple forms of content, from the traditional essay, to poetry and artwork, to short films and photo essays.
