Aigne Journal

Aigne (‘Mind’) is a peer-reviewed online postgraduate journal and falls under the auspices of the Graduate School of the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences at University College Cork. Aigne was founded in 2010 by postgraduate students of the College and regularly invites submissions from both UCC students and postgraduates internationally.

In keeping with the ethos of the College, Aigne encourages submissions that adopt an interdisciplinary perspective. The journal uses a double-blind peer-review process to ensure anonymity and quality of submissions.

The journal publishes two distinct issues a year. The first issue is an annual release, which works in collaboration with the Graduate School’s postgraduate conference. All papers presented at the conference are invited to submit for peer review and the opportunity for publication. The second issue is theme-based and open to postgraduates worldwide.

Aigne invites submissions in both the Irish and the English language. We are further looking for enthusiastic postgraduates who would like to get involved in the workings of the journal. If you are interested in becoming an editor, reviewer or proofreader for Aigne, please do not hesitate to contact us at
