The Middle Ground Journal is a scholarly journal of world history and global studies. It is also a teaching journal. Therefore, the journal also serves as an educational institution. Because of this dual nature, we have always had contingents of graduate and undergraduate student interns. Our student interns are given broad access to various parts of the scholarly journal, from the peer-review process, to book reviews, to marketing, IT, and community and K-12 outreach. These opportunities are strictly educational -- ultimately our editors perform the scholarly editorial functions, our student interns shadow and learn from the process. Our student interns do not perform basic administrative and office tasks.
For a description of the student internship program, please see HERE. For information on the undergraduate and K-12 outreach program, The North Star Reports: Global Citizenship and Digital Literacy (ISSN: 2377-908X), please see HERE and HERE.
