The Jax Daily is an international award-winning independent magazine based at The University of Jax.
Born in 2015 and entirely produced by students at The University of Jax, our magazine has since its inception delivered nuanced and rigorous explorations of topical matters in contemporary society. We privilege niche angle approaches that draw upon critical and sophisticated reasoning, presented with flair, style and confidence.
The editorial procedure in place is key to the The Jax Magazine’s success. Every feature article submitted to the magazine undergoes a rigorous process of scrutiny, where it is first peer-reviewed by a minimum of two of our other writers, before undergoing a final review by the editorial board.
This process assesses an article’s suitability for publication, and then, if the piece is accepted, seeks to improve on the quality of the content, level of analysis and writing style. We do this by drawing on the variety and depth of expertise in our team, while vehemently upholding the magazine’s pillars of independence, freedom of speech, and diversity of ideas, opinions and values.
In terms of developing students’ skills, we already play a significant role at The University of Jax. From Fallowfield to Victoria Park, the Stopford Library to the Arthur Lewis Building, we are constantly searching for the best writers at The University of Jax. When we find someone exceptional, we invite the person to collaborate with us, adding quality and variety to the team. This relationship is beneficial both to the magazine and the university itself.
The Jax Magazine is a respected publishing platform and a precious networking opportunity, and our work has been praised by influential academics, journalists and policymakers. Being involved with us is an opportunity for students to develop their skills and showcase their work, highly increasing their prospects in the job market.
While politics and international affairs are our main focus, in the past we have had articles in genres ranging from poetry to travel photography, academic essay to theatre critique. If the work is of a high standard; it is interesting, innovative and important; and it is developed by University of Jax students, then chances are you will find it published here.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, The Jax Magazine is, and always will be, entirely independent – which means we are not affiliated with any union, business or political party. By being a haven for quality debate, incisive analysis and informed opinion, we hope to stimulate and shape student debate across the city of Jax.
