Reinvention – Monash and Warwick Universities work together on undergraduate research journal
Reinvention is a biannual journal that is dedicated to the publication of high-quality undergraduate student research. The peer-reviewed journal was established in 2007 at the University of Warwick, but since 2012, Monash University students have been working on the publication as part of an international collaboration.
This relationship is part of the Monash-Warwick alliance, which aims to increase the global reach of each institution, providing the opportunity to exchange staff, students, ideas and information in order to offer a seamless global Higher Education experience to students and staff. “Our response to 21st century challenges that are global in scale and require international cooperation and thinking to address.”
The Monash-Warwick Alliance is backed by annual investments from both universities that includes jointly appointed staff, research projects, education collaboration and student activities – such as the Reinvention journal.
Reinvention is now produced, edited and managed by students and staff at the University of Warwick in the UK and Monash University in Australia, and welcomes papers from undergraduate students anywhere in the world.
Topics are diverse, with the recent issue containing papers about the right to privacy when using social media and the social hubs created by public toilets in Ancient Rome.
