Become an Editor

The Capital Scholars Honors Program Staff invites you to apply to be a part of the review board for Continuum. Our vision is a journal of academic and artistic scholarship managed and edited by students at UIS and published once per academic year. At the end of the submission period, a review board of students and faculty will be provided with works submitted and be asked to score them based on their quality and merit across a variety of categories. After a period of time, the review board will reconvene together to evaluate the submissions and determine which works are to be showcased in the journal

Editors must possess exceptional talent in composition and editing, dedicated to creating a vibrant academic community on campus. Editors will work as a team to develop a production timeline that will include a submission review period, which will likely take place either over winter break or at the start of the spring semester. Editors must be willing to devote considerable time during the submission review period to reading submissions and working with the editorial team to make publication decisions.

To Apply

Applications are accepted on a rolling admissions basis throughout the year, but applicants are strongly encouraged to apply.
