About the Journal

Aquila: The Florida Gulf Coast University Student Research Journal is an interdisciplinary student-centered journal with the goal of introducing FGCU students to the revision and publication process by taking critical thinking and written/creative analysis from the classroom to the wider community of scholars. Students transform their research into published articles while receiving mentorship along the way, from preparing their work for submission, to incorporating reviewer comments, to final edits before publication. Published annually, Aquila publishes undergraduate and graduate research from all disciplines and areas of scholarship.
