About the Journal

Alternate Horizons is an online writing platform that encourages emerging scholars and students to publish academic style short articles and opinion pieces.

This platform looks to encourage students from different fields and backgrounds to critically reflect and  explore themes that are not directly related to their fields. Each month explores a different topic and encourages students of all persuasions to contribute their thoughts.

While articles that are published through Alternate Horizons do not conform to traditional academic articles, they are academically referenced, and peer reviewed to ensure the work’s quality.  

Publications are uploaded regularly and are shared with other UP-aligned platforms to increase the audience of each article.

We invite all students to submit their work here.

					View 2021: Special edition: Food security, food systems and food heroes

For this special edition, we have partnered with the UNAI SDG 2 Hub, and the United Nation Academic Impact (UNAI) initiative to look for academic and opinion articles that share perspectives on: Food security, food systems and food heroes. This was inspired by the #FoodHero campaign that looks at how we can make sure that healthy, nutritious food is available and accessible by everyone, across the world.
