Submission of articles

Publishing a paper offers students the opportunity to showcase their work at NMBU as well as to a wider audience outside the university. The Journal accepts papers written according to the submission guidelines, which align with the university’s academic standards and encourage papers from a broad spectrum of study fields.

Submissions

Published articles include a variety of academic text types: term papers, opinionated letters, and original research manuscripts. Texts can be written in either English or Norwegian and are usually accepted during the autumn semester (though exact submission deadlines may vary each year).

Submissions for NMBU Student Journal of Life Sciences Volume 8 should be submitted to studentjournal@nmbu.no
