Critical Commentary is the Student Journal of Newman University published under the aegis of Newman University, in collaboration with the Consortium for Research Excellence, Support and Training (CREST). Critical Commentary exemplifies the development of student research and scholarship at Newman University and participating CREST institutions. Critical commentary was first published in 2007, making it one of the earliest established student research journals in the UK.

Each issue features academic work of a high standard, by undergraduate and taught postgraduate students, reflecting the diversity and quality of the work being produced throughout Newman University and CREST institutions.

Critical Commentary welcomes submissions in response to two Calls for Papers:

Volume 6, Number 1: Special edition on ‘Student partnership’

The journal is also looking for new members of the Editorial Board, and is particularly interested in applications from new researchers and PhD students with an interest in gaining experience of the peer reviewing process.
