Aims & Scope
Seven Bridges is a student-led, academic journal published annually by Newcastle College. The journal was launched in 2013 as a student journal dedicated to business and management, from July 2014 Seven Bridges expanded its remit to become a multidisciplinary journal.
Seven Bridges is built upon the principle of Student as Producer, an approach that focuses on engaging students as active academic partners in education, research and scholarship. The journal provides a supportive opportunity for students to publish their research, as well as engage in academic editorial and peer review processes.
The Seven Bridges Editorial Team are appointed through the Newcastle College student fellowship programme, which provides funded opportunities for students to engage in extra-curricular projects aimed at enhancing the student experience.
