About

Focus and Scope

Glocality is a student-faculty-run multidisciplinary undergraduate academic journal which offers students and alumni from universities of applied sciences a serious scientific tool to share their knowledge with the rest of the scholarly community worldwide.

Glocality aims to promote academic and scientific applied research among undergraduate students and create critical glocal thinking to deal with the challenges ahead of us in the disciplines of Social Entrepreneurship, Civil Society, Urban Dynamics, and Health. We aim to create innovative and young schools of thought.

Our goals are to:
· introduce students into research disciplines and the publishing process
· encourage undergraduates to write at an academic level
· make the results of undergraduate research accessible to everyone
· include voices across all disciplines in a multimedia format
· create a glocal community of scholars who contribute to the knowledge society
