The Queen's Journal

The Queen's Journal is the main student-run newspaper at Queen's University at Kingston in Kingston, Ontario. The paper was founded in 1873 and has been continually publishing ever since.[1][2][3] It is as old as The Harvard Crimson, the oldest continuously published student newspaper in the United States.[4] The Journal is published twice a week, usually on Tuesdays and Fridays. The 2021-22 Editors in Chief are Aysha Tabassum and Shelby Talbot.[5][6] The publication is an editorially autonomous paper, guaranteed by the Alma Mater Society of Queen's University and its constitution and by-laws.[7][8]

The paper maintains a friendly rivalry with the campus' humour paper Golden Words. This is best exemplified by the annual publication of a fake edition of The Journal, containing outlandish stories, by Golden Words.

Journal alumni can often be found working for many of North America's major newspapers and media outlets. Notable names include Adam Shortt, former Ottawa mayor Charlotte Whitton, former ABC News correspondent Jeffrey Kofman, novelist Robertson Davies, Al Jazeera's Ali Velshi, former Toronto Star editor-in-chief Giles Gherson, former Ottawa Citizen editor-in-chief Scott Anderson, former editor-in-chief of The Globe and Mail John Stackhouse, author, former Toronto Star columnist, and academic James Laxer, Jeffrey Simpson (author and former political columnist for The Globe and Mail), former Toronto Star managing editor Jane Davenport, and Toronto Star reporter Kristin Rushowy.
