Promoting Undergraduate Research

Founded at Tulane University by six undergraduate students, The Tulane Journal of Policy and Political Economy seeks to further political and economic research by providing undergraduates with the opportunity to have their own original research published in an internationally-recognized, peer- and faculty-reviewed journal. 


By maintaining an international network of faculty, students, and organizations within the world's foremost academic institutions, we ensure that accepted student writings reach far beyond their home schools.

Our Mission




Biannual Publication and Collaboration

The Tulane Journal publishes issues twice a year, available as in both physical and digital formats. Publishing with The Tulane Journal not only disseminates original, scholarly research, but also provides writers and contributors with a collaborative editorial process. Previous editions have been indexed in the Library of Congress.


All accepted articles undergo a rigorous review by faculty at Tulane University, who specialize in the core, intersecting themes of The Tulane Journal. The Tulane Journal and its involved students aim to be at the forefront of policy and political economy research.
