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 2014-15 editors-in-chief are Nick Faris and Vincent Ben Matak.[2] The current business manager is David Worsley.[3]

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.[4]
