Fields: journal of Huddersfield student research is a peer reviewed journal developed as part of the University of Huddersfield Teaching and Learning strategy to support and showcase the best of our student work in terms of research across all the seven Schools that make up the University of Huddersfield.

The Fields journal has just published its first issue in the fifth volume of student research, which features some incredible articles from our very own University of Huddersfield undergraduate students. The new edition includes work from a variety of schools across the university, and provides an exciting blend of eye-opening theories and essays to fascinate and intrigue.

Read on to find out what Editors Professor Tim Thornton and Professor Helen Lomax have to say about the brilliant new edition.


‘The arrival of the fifth edition of Fields feels like something of a milestone. Once again, the journal brings us a wide range of student work, from social sciences to computer science to costume. But it appears against the background of the recent achievement of 14,700 downloads from across the world for Fields in 2018, which is an increase of 60% on the 9000 downloads we had in 2017, validating the original vision that there was an audience for high-quality student work well beyond the university's campus. As Professor Helen Lomax, the latest in our sequence of eminent editors observes, this reflects the strength of research and teaching at Huddersfield, and I am sure it will help inspire further work by students in the future.’

‘I am very pleased to be editing the fifth edition of Fields, the University of Huddersfield's student research journal. Fields is a peer-reviewed journal showcasing some of the best research from our undergraduate students across the spectrum of academic disciplines at the University.

This latest issue continues the commitment to disseminating excellent undergraduate research. Each of the eight articles featured presents a novel argument, review of extant literature or original empirical research undertaken by our undergraduates during their final year of study.

I hope you enjoy reading the papers as much as much as the editorial team and I have enjoyed selecting and reviewing them. It has been my pleasure to present such an interesting range of papers, which reflect the high quality of research and teaching at the University of Huddersfield. I would like to extend my thanks the authors for the high quality of their submissions as well as the editorial team and supervisors for their commitment to selecting, reviewing and supporting the student submissions.’
