Want to publish your graduate research in a peer-reviewed journal?

Human Welfare is accepting submissions from graduate students worldwide!

Human Welfare: An International Journal of Graduate Research

Based at Green Templeton College, University of Oxford, Human Welfare: An International Journal of Graduate Research is a multidisciplinary journal that aims to publish the very best graduate research investigating human welfare issues with real-world ramifications.

Human Welfare accepts submissions from graduate students (i.e., masters and doctoral students) in ANY discipline and at any stage of their research. Students who have completed a graduate program within the previous 12 months may also submit a manuscript based on their research.

Peer-review process

All articles in Human Welfare are peer-reviewed by 1-2 established academics and a current graduate student. After peer-review, articles are further reviewed by the editorial board as a whole. All articles published in the journal are completely open access.


Human Welfare welcomes submissions of academic and research articles by the groups of students described above. The journal also welcomes general interest articles and essays related to human welfare. Students are encouraged to submit the following types of manuscript:

  1. Research Notes (500 – 1,500 words)

Research notes are intended to inform the wider research community about work in progress. These allow graduate students who are beginning their research to receive feedback and invite discussion on their research questions, theory, methodology, and/or initial findings.

  1. Research Papers (2,500 – 6,000 words)

Research papers offer graduate students in the final stages of a research project the opportunity to disseminate their primary findings. Articles should include an abstract of 200 words.

Critical reviews are intended to provide a summative answer to a question, issue, or research topic related to human welfare. Authors should include an abstract of 200 words.
