Aims & Scope
The Omnipedia Review supports the scholarship of integration, which Ernest L. Boyer defines as “making connections across disciplines, placing the specialties in larger context, illuminating data in a revealing way, often educating nonspecialists” (Scholarship Reconsidered, 18). Boyer reminds us that such scholarship is led by questions that “call for the power of critical analysis and interpretation. They have a legitimacy of their own” (19-20).
To that end, The Omnipedia Review creates a destination for such student scholarship. Every inquiry-based endeavor requires a researcher to understand the field in order to bring something new to the table. Scholars often embed such activity in longer projects of original research, yet the results of preliminary research create a resource for other researchers, thereby extending the scholarly conversation.
