THE ACADEMY


The Academy is our Peer-Review Imprint.

Universal Write Publications LLC academic 'peer review' publishing company focuses on quality control, by having accomplished Ph.D. scholars review and suggest publishing or offfer edits and revisions to make submitted work better reflect not just the scholar, but the publication.


Each article published in our peer-reviewed journal or anthology, is closely examined by a panel of reviewers who are experts on the article's topic (that is the author's professional peers- Peer Review).  The reviewers look for proper use of research methods, significance of the paper's contribution to the existing literature, and integration of previous authors' work on the topic in any discussion, including citations.  These papers and articles in our anthologies and books are expert-approved by authoritative voices in college-level research.
