The Journal of Interdisciplinary Research (JIDR) is an annually published, peer-reviewed graduate student journal. The primary mission of this journal is to promote and discover interdisciplinary areas of academic research. The deadline for paper submissions this year is April 7, 2016, via a Blackboard site. The best three papers will be awarded at the Community of Scholars event on April 28. If you are interesting in joining the JIDR or if you have questions, please contact email@example.com.
