Empire State University Magazines and Journals
Connections tells the stories of the university's remarkable alumni, students, faculty, and staff. The publication also reports on timely, relevant higher-education issues that impact the university and our students, alumni, and employees.
As stated in the introduction of the first edition, “Labor Writes is intended as a vehicle for the expression of the hopes of some of the movement’s newest members. Labor Writes also aspires and empowers.”
The publication showcases the experience and ability of apprentices in these fields. More importantly, these publications serve to tell labor’s story to a wider audience through the students.
The Metropolitan Review is a university-wide journal for student writing and artwork that is published each fall.
The submission period is open from Oct. 1 to Jan. 15, each year.

Revisiting Boyer: Exploring the Scholarly Work of Empire State University Faculty
Known to the college community informally as the Boyer Journal, Revisiting Boyer: Exploring the Scholarly Work of Empire State College Faculty, explores four “pillars” of scholarship as articulated by former United States Commission of Education and SUNY Chancellor Ernest L. Boyer: discovery, integration, application and teaching.
The college unveiled this special scholarly journal at its 2011 All College Conference in Saratoga Springs as part of its 40th anniversary celebrations.
Boyer was a driving force behind the creation of the college in 1971 during his tenure as SUNY chancellor.
PLA Inside Out: An International Journal on Theory, Research and Practice in Prior Learning Assessment
PLA Inside Out: An International Journal on Theory, Research and Practice in Prior Learning Assessment (PLAIO) is the first scholarly online journal entirely devoted to the recognition and assessment of prior experiential learning, edited by Nan Travers, director of the Center for Leadership in Credentialing Learning (CL2), and Alan Mandell, professor of adult learning and mentoring at Empire State University. Karen LaBarge, senior staff assistant for faculty development at Empire State University is the associate editor.
The goal of this electronic publication is to help anchor prior learning assessment (PLA) work as central to thinking about teaching and learning, to support and recognize scholarly work in the field of prior learning assessment, to provoke new ideas and experiences in PLA practices, to provide a central repository for PLA-relevant resources, and to place PLA work in an historical context.
Prior learning assessment is known throughout the world by many different names: Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), Assessment of Prior Learning (APL), Assessment of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL), Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR), and Prior Learning Assessment and Articulation (PLAA), to name a few. The goal of PLAIO is to address all forms of recognizing, articulating and assessing prior college-level learning, regardless of its name or its country of origin.
For submissions information, contact Travers, Mandell or LaBarge at firstname.lastname@example.org.
