Submissions published in the Any Other Word are selected by a board of directors who read all entries submitted and make selections. The student adviser has the final say on what is published.

The publication takes its name from the quote by William Shakespeare, “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other word would smell as sweet.”
