Globus is an online journal published by the University of San Francisco’s International Studies Department. Inspired by the Jesuit concept of Magis, which urges us to extend our actions for broader societal impact, the journal publishes journalistic work covering global affairs through a social justice lens. Globus primarily showcase articles authored by USF faculty, staff, students and alumni, though invited and submitted works from global activists, scholars and experts are also welcomed. Globus publishes feature articles, profiles, opinion essays, analyses and on-the-ground reportage from around the world, with the aim to transform academic research into relevant, compelling stories that speak to the global community and distinguish the original work being conducted at USF.

We invite all USF community members to submit ideas for publication. Articles for Globus should reflect reporting from the field that tells a story with human dimensions and sheds light on issues of economic, social, or environmental justice. We seek engaging, thought-provoking narratives that draw new connections, reveal insightful research, and explore greater truths about people and the planet.
