The Queen's Journal, or simply The Journal, is the main student-run newspaper at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. The paper was founded in 1873 and has been continually publishing ever since.[1] It is as old as the Harvard Crimson, the oldest continuously published student newspaper in the United States. The Journal is published twice a week, usually on Tuesdays and Fridays. The 2016-2017 editors-in-chief are Jacob Rosen and Jane Willsie.[2]

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

The publication is an editorially autonomous paper, guaranteed by the Alma Mater Society, its Constitution, and its Corporate By-laws.[3]


Journal alumni can often be found working for many of North America's major newspapers and media outlets. Notable names include Adam Shortt, Charlotte Whitton, former ABC News correspondent Jeffrey Kofman, Robertson Davies, Al Jazeera's Ali Velshi, former Toronto Star editor-in-chief Giles Gherson, former Ottawa Citizen editor-in-chief Scott Anderson and The Globe and Mail's former editor-in-chief John Stackhouse.
