Open Access Publications from the University of California


Who Can Submit

Global Societies Journal publishes material from graduate and undergraduate students and young scholars at any of the ten University of California campuses and beyond. Please familiarize yourself with Aims and Scope available at: or view previous issues for more information on the topics we publish.


Once posted to a repository, a paper cannot generally be revised or removed. We feel it is important to provide perpetual access to materials published within eScholarship whenever possible and appropriate. However, we will remove publications under special circumstances, including in the case of submission errors, rights violations, or inappropriate content. Please be aware, however, that even after the removal of a text, a citation to the paper will remain in our system, along with a URL.

If you would like your work removed from eScholarship, please contact our Editorial Office at:

Revising Work

Once published, we are generally unable to revise manuscripts. If a significant error or omission is discovered, please contact the Editorial Office at:

Author Review

Authors are asked to review final versions of their manuscripts with a set date. At this stage, we're unable to make any changes beyond rare errors.

Rights and Permissions

Before submitting a paper to the repository, please be sure that all necessary permissions have been cleared. You, as an author, retain all copyrights to your work and grant us the right to publish this material. All articles published in the journal are subject to the journal’s author agreement, which is available in the first step of the submission process or by contacting us to request a copy.
