The Epsilon Zeta Chapter publishes an online local chapter journal at least yearly to give undergraduate students an opportunity to demonstrate their research and writing skills, publish papers and creative works, and give them valuable experience during the process. While publication in the national journal requires national membership, publication in the chapter journal requires only enrollment as a BYU-Idaho student. We welcome papers and essays on topics ranging from foreign trade to language & cultural issues, to international politics, and everything inbetween that relates to individual and state-level interactions within the international system.
