The Canyon Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies is published in print and online twice a year through the Center for Innovation in Research and Teaching at Grand Canyon University (GCU), and highlights exemplary student and faculty research. Our annual themed issue provides a platform for writers and researchers from a range of disciplines, making CJIS unique in its interdisciplinary focus. CJIS also publishes a yearly Integration of Faith, Learning and Work issue where that interdisciplinary focus is viewed through the additional lens of faith.
The goals of CJIS are:
1. To encourage an exchange of empirical and theoretical research with an interdisciplinary focus.
2. To increase awareness of the range and diversity of research being conducted by faculty and students at GCU and other institutions.
3. To provide graduate students professional experience in the dissemination and publication of their work.
Aligned with these goals, topics covered in CJIS represent a range of methodologies, disciplines and theoretical topics.
Manuscripts published in CJIS are relevant to a broad audience of post-secondary faculty, students and researchers.
