The Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis (JCTP) is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary, open access journal housed in the School of Education that is run by an editorial board of graduate students from a range of academic departments across the university. JCTP is hosted by the Digital Repository @ Iowa State University, which is managed by Iowa State University Library and powered by Bepress (Berkeley Electronic Press). Students in the Education for Social Justice certificate started the journal, and it retains an unofficial affiliation with the certificate.
