forsch! (German imperative for ‘research!’) is the University of Oldenburg’s online student journal – platform where students can publish their own academic writing and make it accessible outside the classroom. Research projects, term papers, and other course assignments can be submitted. Submissions are evaluated by two reviewers and will be published if they receive positive feedback and after necessary revisions – where required – have been made.
The goal is to give students a chance to enhance their academic writing and argumentation and to learn how to present their research to an interdisciplinary audience.
All of this and much more can be found on the forsch! website.
What is student publishing?
Students do not only do research for their theses. They also research other contexts and produce interesting and relevant results. Despite this, these texts often just end up in the drawer after they have been graded and fulfilled their use of getting credit points. The main objective of the student journal forsch! is to raise the visibility of student research and to make insights worth reading available to a broader audience. forsch! welcomes submissions in various formats, reflecting multiple perspectives of student research. This is why we have different categories for different types of submissions: research paper, essay, research proposal, experimental format or abstracts of distinguished theses.
forsch! is an Open-Access journal, which means that all published works can not only be viewed online, but also downloaded free of charge. This raises the visibility of the publication and increases your impact, leading to a variety of potential uses not only within the academic community but also among the general public. forsch! is published through Open Journal Systems, an open source software used to manage and publish academic journals. It was developed by the Public Knowledge Project, an international collaboration project among several universities.
