Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
Submissions are evaluated by a faculty editorial board; however, because the faculty editorial board members may not have expertise on the content of every submission, we count on faculty mentors to work closely with student researchers to ensure manuscripts submitted for consideration are of an appropriate caliber for publication. Following submission, the editorial board for The Rowdy Scholar will review the work to ensure that the work is original and meets our rigorous publication standards. The Rowdy Scholar is an inclusive journal and The Rowdy Scholar editorial board strives to have representation of research and creative work from diverse disciplines from across the university in each edition of the journal.
Timeline for Editorial Process
The deadline for submission is February 11, 2022. All student submissions must have their faculty mentor submit a Faculty Mentor Support Form to be considered for review. Upon receipt of all necessary forms, your submission will be designated a unique identifier to preserve the integrity of the review process and will be forwarded to two reviewers from The Rowdy Scholar Editorial Board. The approximate timeline for review by the is 3 weeks. Reviewers will make one of 3 decisions: 1) Accepted without revisions; 2) Accepted with Revisions (Minor or Major); 3) Rejected (for possible reasons for rejection, please see the following section.) If revisions are requested, the student will have 3 weeks to make suggested edits and resubmit.
