Metropolitan Universities journal (MUJ) is the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities’ (CUMU) quarterly online journal. Founded in 1990, the journal disseminates scholarship on cutting-edge topics impacting urban and metropolitan colleges and universities. It is a peer-reviewed, open access publication—which means that it employs traditional methods of evaluating manuscripts while ensuring that those accepted for publication are freely available to anyone interested in the issues and themes covered. MUJ's readership includes those working to address issues facing modern universities and the communities they serve. Authors bring diverse institutional and professional perspectives to showcasing applications of theory and best practices to these issues.

Metropolitan Universities is published quarterly. Three issues are organized thematically; the fourth is an open issue published throughout the year on an ongoing, continuous basis alongside the themed issues. Each issue is edited by a guest editor(s), who are typically selected from CUMU member institutions and represent a variety of academic backgrounds and fields of expertise. Authors are invited to submit manuscripts for juried consideration.
