The Journal of Multidisciplinary Research at Trent (JMRT) is a graduate-student run, open-access, peer-reviewed research journal founded in 2017 at Trent University. The purpose of this journal is to showcase the research work of graduate students by publishing summaries of graduate theses, original and review papers, including literature reviews, book reviews, film reviews, position papers, empirical work, experiential reflections, and original quantitative and qualitative research. We also publish special issues with abstracts from research events organized at Trent University (e.g., conferences, symposiums, departmental presentations, colloquiums).
We aim to provide an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approach, locally and nationally. Our goal is to create an awareness for the importance of research from all fields of the arts and sciences, and to create a platform for a scholarly dialogue between graduate students, faculty members and other research groups. In addition, JMRT is designed to help graduate students learn to write journal publications and get accustomed to the review process. Our open-access feature allows for accelerated discovery, public communication, and connected education.
The journal is published once per year in electronic format. We are now accepting submissions and are recruiting for editors and reviewers (also open to non-Trent graduate students). The deadline for all submissions including manuscripts and abstracts has now been extended to January 31st, 2018.
