What is the Troika Journal?
The Troika is an undergraduate journal in Eastern European, Eurasian, and Slavic Studies at the University of California, Berkeley.
What types of student work does Troika publish?
The Troika Journal publishes mostly academic research papers, creative writing, photography, artwork and memoirs.
How can you submit to Troika?
If you would like to submit your work to Troika, please email it as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org, and please include your name, university, major (or intended major), and graduation year. All submissions must be original, unpublished work. We gladly accept papers and other creative works written for classes. Please limit your submission to 3000 words. Only one submission per person will be considered during each submission period.
Do you have to be a UC Berkeley student to be published in Troika?
No, you do not need to be a Berkeley student to be published in Troika. Troika is an international journal, and we accept and publish submissions from universities all over the world. Additionally, Troika is meant to support the exploration of the variety of Eastern European cultures, so we accept works on all topics as long as they somehow pertain to themes of the region.
Do I have to be an undergraduate to submit to Troika?
The Troika Journal publishes only undergraduate submissions. However, you do not need to be a current undergraduate. We will accept work that has been created while the author was receiving their undergraduate education, even if the author has already graduated.
How many photographs can I submit?
There is no limit on the number of photos (or drawings, etc.) that you can submit, but we do prefer that the artist goes through their work and selects the pieces they feel are best. Also, some of the artwork may be selected to be featured on the website instead of (or in addition to) being published; we will contact the author if that is the case.
