Trail Six is a nationally recognized academic journal, published annually by students at the University of British Columbia’s Department of Geography. It exists to publish the exemplary scholarly work of undergraduate students within the field of geography in a peer-reviewed, academic setting.

Papers are submitted for blind review by a board of peer editors, after which they are voted on. Upon approval, Faculty members of the UBC Department of Geography are invited to review papers that align with their research interests and expertise. Reviewers and editors then collaborate with the authors to refine their writing before putting forward a final draft for approval by the Editor-in-Chief.

Current and previous editions of Trail Six are made available to the public on the principle that open-access research supports a global exchange of knowledge. The articles that constitute each volume are representative of the array of topics that comprise the discipline of geography. Situated at the intersection of the natural and social sciences, Trail Six continually seeks to disseminate innovative and original scholarship that appeals to the diverse intellectual palate of our readership.
