We draw upon our own experience to discuss the use of undergraduate student journals to promote active learning by comparing and contrasting institution-focused (Park Place Economist) and externally-focused (Undergraduate Economic Review) publications, suggesting ways of integrating these journals into upper-division coursework, and describing ways in which economics departments can partner with libraries to facilitate the editorial process and increase the accessibility of the journal.
