About the Journal

Aims and Scope
     Gadfly is an open-access academic journal committed to publishing undergraduate scholarship from all subfields of Political Science. The journal provides a forum in which undergraduate research can be scrutinized, disseminated, and discussed by fellow undergraduates.


     Gadfly offers a remedy to the finite number of opportunities for undergraduates to participate in the academic discourse. After submission, students will get the chance to work alongside Gadfly staff through reviews, proofreading, and reformatting in the Gadfly style to ensure the final manuscript accurately reflects the author’s work. Once published, Gadfly encourages discussion, including submissions consisting of reviews of published work.
