Recognizing students as authors, reviewers, advisors, and editors in academic writing acknowledges students’ expertise and the value of their unique perspectives. Integrating students into publishing practices, as we do in this journal, expands the sphere of student influence in the academy by structuring their expertise and insights into the development of knowledge about learning and teaching. In this editorial, we reflect on the role of students in IJSaP by sharing selected examples of how they are contributing to and creating scholarly conversations about students-as-partners work through their participation in the journal. This editorial is written by three faculty members of the editorial board and follows on from the editorial in the last issue that was written by five student members of the board (Ntem et al., 2020).Linking these affirmations of student contributions with a call for an expansion of writing genres to be inclusive of a greater number and a greater diversity of students(as well as staff/faculty/academics), we introduce a new sectionof the journal called Voices from the Field. Expanding IJSaP’s commitment to inclusion, the focus of the inaugural version of this new section is on diversifying students-as-partners participants and practices.
