About the Journal
University College Cork has over 1000 doctoral students doing research in almost every field of academia. The Boolean is an on-line collection of short papers in which these students describe their area of research and some of their main findings and was published on an annual basis from 2010-2015.
During this time, The Boolean provided a platform for students to share their research with others within and outside the University besides the specialist readers who might learn of it through conventional academic publication routes.
Many of our students work on topics of interest to a huge range of stakeholders, including industry, employers and the general public, and the journal provided a way for their research to become known. In addition, students who submitted articles gained experience of communicating to a non-specialist audience, while some students were directly involved in the editing and production process.
The aspiration is to publish more volumes in the future
