What your submission needs to be eligible for publication
How to send your submission to LOGOS
How to make your writing as strong as possible
We accept any work for consideration created for an undergraduate class at Missouri State University or an affiliated campus. A student does not need to be currently enrolled, as long as the work was created while the author was a Missouri State undergraduate student and was turned into an MSU faculty member for a grade. Faculty may also partner with students in submissions, but the student must be the primary author.
While we accept multiple submissions from a single or multiple authors, we DO NOT accept simultaneous submissions (i.e. submitting the same work to another publication at the same time).
LOGOS has a 16% acceptance rate . We are also EBSCOhost searchable. Since our first publication in 2008, articles from LOGOS have been cited 47 times in other publications.
Please note submissions must be your original work. As a multidisciplinary scholarly journal, we accept submissions from every field of study and discipline, such as literature, astronomy, art, poetry, business, education, biology, history, and more. Submissions can take many forms, including the following:
- Empirical research
- Research that demonstrates new methods of serving or applying existing knowledge
- Replications of previous works if executed in a thorough, scholarly manner (e.g. a historical recreation of a famous experiment with commentary on scientific methods used at the time)
- Exceptional review articles, essays, abridged versions of term papers, or other contributions based solely on primary or secondary sources
- Short critical notes that demonstrate viewpoints or insights related to previously published work
- Artistic production relatable to a recognized academic field including but not exclusive to creative writing, painting, ceramics, photography, etc. Missouri State University’s stance on creative works as academic research can be accessed at the following link: http://www.missouristate.edu/longrangeplan/
If you are submitting multiple poems, please submit them in a combined document unless you have written different abstracts for each.
Authors will be notified of the status of their submissions status as soon as possible after review, which is often in the summer. The submission may be accepted with no or minor revisions, recommended for revision and resubmission, or rejected.
