- Hurdle Requirement: A reflective work-log (1,000 words) submitted to the Subject Coordinator specifying in outline the substantial intellectual contribution made to MJIL in the enrolled semester and reflecting on the broad state of the research field relevant to MJIL and other subject objectives in light of the work undertaken. Marking code 2 applies: work judged grossly in excess of any word limit will incur a marking penalty.
- An independent research paper of 5,000 words (100% *). The work must be on a research question (developed by the student in consultation with the subject coordinator and/or discipline expert) and in a genre that make it suitable for publication in the MJIL. Marking code 3 applies: The word limit will be regarded as recommended rather than compulsory and no student will be disadvantaged by exceeding the limit.
*In place of the independent research paper, students holding the position of Editor may choose to complete a 5,000 word paper that critically analyses and reflects on editorial choices made and challenges faced in the process of editing the volume(s) with which they were involved. Marking code 2 applies: work judged grossly in excess of any word limit will incur a marking penalty.
