Making the Jump: Digital Publishing and Collaboration

By Justin Hodgson

The Journal for Undergraduate Multimedia Projects (TheJUMP) is a peer-reviewed, online journal dedicated to showcasing multimedia scholarship created by undergraduates in courses all around the world. Currently, TheJUMP is the only journal dedicated exclusively to undergraduate multimedia. But what really sets TheJUMP apart from other journals, electronic or print, undergraduate, graduate, or professional, is that each published project acts as one element in a larger ecology of discourse.

Published media projects are accompanied by a series of elements: responses from members of the journal’s editorial collective, student and instructor reflections, course and assignment descriptions, and a project timeline. Reviewers participate in both the pre- and post-production aspects of the journal, providing critical feedback, evaluative statements, and suggestions for revisions on submissions, and also have the opportunity to respond to the final projects. Collaboration underlies the development, publication, and response to the complex media projects shared in TheJUMP.
