Boston College Libraries host Open Access Journals as a way to promote and sponsor freely accessible scholarship around the world.

Open Access Scholarship allows for ideas and research to travel beyond the network of people and institutions who can afford subscriptions to top journals, but to all interested researchers. No article-processing charges removes any financial barrier to engaging in the scholarly process of journal publication.

Journals

  • Bellarmine Law Society Review

    The Bellarmine Law Society Review is Boston College’s premier source of undergraduate scholarship relating to the law. Although the BLSR is supported and managed by Boston College students, it provides the opportunity for undergraduates across the U.S. to contribute to national legal discourse.


    The BLSR’s scope encompasses all aspects of the law, including and especially its relationship with other academic disciplines, both in the social and natural sciences. Although the Editorial Board does not prefer one genre of submission over another, the BLSR's best scholarship highlights the interdisciplinary nature of the law and the many ways in which an undergraduate education exposes important questions thereof. 

  • Beyond Borders: Advances in Global Welfare

    Beyond Borders: Advances in Global Welfare (BBAGW) is an Open Access and peer-reviewed journal published by The Boston College School of Social Work. The journal is a joint venture between Boston College and IFCU-Social Sciences.


    Our primary goal is to present a widely accessible platform upon which Social Work practitioners, scholars, and educators can reflect on and share best practices and innovations taking place in the arena of Social Welfare worldwide. In addition to original research, each issue will highlight selected human service organizations and will focus on evidence-based practices (EBP) and innovation utilized to address social problems.


    The Journal publishes two issues each year – one in the spring and the other in the fall.

  • Colloquium: The Political Science Journal of Boston College

    Colloquium is Boston College's leading political science publication. Serving as a forum to promote academic dialogue and exchange both within and outside of the University's political science community, Colloquium expands upon the traditional offerings of a political science education. Coupled with the discipline's intensive writing and critical thinking nature, Colloquium furthers the means through which students are able to address, ponder, and critique the political issues of past and present.

  • ConSecuencias

    The editors are excited to launch a venue for rigorous research that presents original and responsible interpretations of Spanish cultural production of all periods across relevant disciplines. We encourage the use of texts (from literary and visual arts to film, architecture, and other forms of cultural production) as principal evidence. Working primarily from an intensive reading of source texts, contributions should challenge accepted ways of reading in a spirit of collegiality and professionalism.


    At the heart of this mission lies the following question: what happens when the interpretation of a text becomes normative, and is handed down from generations of professors to students without consistent interrogation? We believe that this has significant consequences. This journal is concerned with the renewal and constant development of thinking skills, the erasure of equality in difference, and the negotiability of received ideas and values.


    ConSecuencias is interdisciplinary and will embrace the potential for responsible, evidence-based ways of understanding complex literary and cultural expressions that can come from integrating the theoretical and methodological approaches of more than one field of study. To address objectively the pressing and complicated questions of literature, the articles of this journal will combine the research approaches, skills, and perspectives of such fields as visual and performing arts, history, philosophy, psychology, sociology, economics, women’s and gender studies, biology and many others. The journal will similarly embrace work that recognizes the importance of intersectionality (the way in which various political, social, and cultural identities shape experience and knowledge) and social justice. The journal will create opportunities for faculty and students to engage with researchers and concepts that will expand their realities and experiences (ways of knowing and experiencing the Spanish literary world).


    ConSecuencias welcomes new and sound dialogues in a safe space, where researchers at all stages of their career will find scientific and rigorous work that helps them move past uncritical applications of theory. We are looking for an “archaeological” approach to texts, uncovering what is not immediately visible, and paying close attention to the specificity of each case.


    The journal appears once annually online, and has support from the Boston College Institute of Liberal Arts.

    Romance eReview

    Romance eReview is a peer-reviewed graduate journal of literary and cultural criticism, published annually by the Department of Romance Languages & Literatures at Boston College. The journal is edited and managed by the graduate students of our Master’s program. In the first place, Romance eReview aims at creating a common venue of intellectual exchange for the Spanish, French and Italian sections of our department and providing our students with a first-hand editorial experience, both as contributors and as peer reviewers. As such, Romance eReview is a central component of our students’ training.

    We chose the online format in order to favor accessibility and to reach out to a diverse, multi-disciplinary scholarly community. Our intention is to revive and redefine the legacy of Romance Review (1989-2007), which had been, for many years, the official journal of the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at Boston College. Ultimately, we wish to consolidate the intellectual identity of our Graduate program and showcase our students’ best work. However, our journal will also publish papers from other graduate programs in the United States and abroad, offering the opportunity for a broader intellectual dialogue in the Romance literary tradition.

  • Studies in the Spirituality of Jesuits

    Studies in the Spirituality of Jesuits is a product of the Seminar on Jesuit Spirituality. This Seminar is composed of a group of Jesuits appointed from their provinces in the United States. The Seminar studies topics pertaining to the spiritual doctrine and practice of Jesuits, especially American Jesuits, and gathers current scholarly studies pertaining to the history and ministries of Jesuits throughout the world. It then disseminates the results through this journal.

    The issues treated may be common also to Jesuits of other regions, other priests, religious, and laity, to both men and women. Hence, the studies, while meant especially for American Jesuits, are not exclusively for them. Others who may find them helpful are cordially welcome to read them.

    More information is available at Jesuit.org.

  • Integritas: Advancing the Mission of Catholic Higher Education

    Integritas is no longer accepting articles.

    The Division of University Mission and Ministry at Boston College established the journal Integritas, dedicated to exploring questions about the nature of the university in the twenty-first century.  Its specific mission was to foster conversation about the ways that faith traditions incite researchers and teachers to ask new questions about the world and the place of human beings within it.  It invited reflection on the ways that these traditions act as catalysts for inquiry in the sciences and social sciences, the professions, and the liberal arts.  It asked researchers to reflect on the ways that new developments in their fields help them to raise questions of transcendence, and offer insights into moral questions.  It offered a forum for reflection on the ways that universities today relate to religious congregations and traditions, both in their organizational structures and in their teaching and research, while at the same time operating with the freedom of inquiry that characterizes academic life today.  Finally, it addressed the neuralgic question of how universities today iterate an approach to knowledge that might be described as rooted in religious faith.
