Started in 2017, the Phoenix Scholar began as a periodical created for showcasing research conducted within the University of Phoenix, College of Doctoral Studies. Since then, the Phoenix Scholar has published more than 16 issues with 268 contributive articles, as well as receiving its own ISSN from the National Library of Congress. The primary areas for research the periodical seeks are contained within the following disciplines:
- Diversity and Inclusion
- Organizational Studies
Additionally, the focus remains on scholarship and practice within research where authors can share their current research, article reviews, conceptual papers, and empirical research, thereby extending to the academic community at large, and on a much broader scale to all communities with issues that affect society and the world.
The benefits of engaging the journal include:
- Access to current topical issues within the social sciences.
- Gaining a greater understanding regarding a variety of social science issues.
- Helping support the readers' own research interests as reference material.
- Helping guide those who seek to understand more on a specific topic or issue.
For researchers submitting, the periodical is a conduit for sharing and expanding their findings, exploring the potential of connecting with a broader audience, enhancing their own writing and authoring credentials, and contributing to the body of research on specialized topical matter.
