Finally, the first issue of Snapshot undergraduate student journal is out! This journal was written, reviewed, and edited by students of the Humboldt Language Centre.
We want to thank everyone who worked with us on this issue and put a lot of effort into making it a success, especially the authors who submitted their work. We are very pleased with the result and you can download a pdf of the journal here or by clicking on the image below.
The publication process
After receiving all the submissions, we started to peer-review every article. We provided feedback and suggestions to the authors and then edited the articles together.
Finally, we put all the edited submissions together into one document to create the final version, printed one copy to check the layout, and sent it off to the printers.
Our reflections on the process
We, the editors, loved the process of putting together this journal.
If you are interested in becoming a future editor of Snapshot yourself, or if you want to read about our experiences, then check out ‘An interview with the Snapshot journal team’ on page twenty two.
Now that we have finished the first issue, it is time for us make way for the next group of editors, as there is another Student Journal course planned for summer semester 2022.
It was a great experience working as a team and collaborating with other students. If you are interested in taking the Student Journal course in the future, you can contact the instructor Mr Walsh for information at: walshpau (at) hu-berlin.de
