Publishing Your Work

Whether your research leads to an essay, poetry, or scientific report, you have many opportunities to publish your work in reviewed, national, professional journals or other outlets.

If you wish to publish, you should first talk to your Faculty Mentor. In some areas, their advice is the best. For example, there are hundreds of scientific journals available in a diversity of fields and submitting your work to one of these journals would be in your best interests.

However, there are also journals available that specialize in publishing the results of undergraduate research and creative projects. The major journals in this area are:

The URC Undergraduate Research Journal is an annual online national, reviewed journal dedicated to the publication of undergraduate student research. The twofold purpose of the journal is to foster and reward the scholarly efforts of undergraduate human sciences students as well as to provide a valuable learning experience. The articles represent primarily the work of the undergraduate student(s). Faculty members, who deserve recognition, are identified by an asterisk next to their names.

The articles published in this journal will reflect appropriate scope and complexity for excellent undergraduate work. The basis for accepting papers for publication is the agreement among three reviewers (two professionals and one peer) that the project and design are strong representatives of introductory level research.

JYI, Inc. is a exciting, student-led initiative to broaden the scope of the undergraduate scientific experience. JYI provides opportunities for students to participate in the scientific review and publication processes, primarily through the operation of its peer-reviewed journal for undergraduates. Incorporated as a non-profit, entirely student-run corporation, JYI's staff members currently represent over 30 different academic institutions. JYI has been featured in EurekAlert!, Chemical Engineering News, and The Chronicle on Higher Education. Recently, an article highlighting JYI appeared in The New York Times (17 February 1999).

Reviews in Undergraduate Research is an international undergraduate journal dedicated solely to publishing high-quality natural sciences reviews by undergraduate student-authors for their peers.

The Caltech Undergraduate Research Journal is written for undergraduates everywhere. Original work, entertaining writing, stunning production. In each issue, CURJ presents an exciting composite of letters, reviews, research, and art. Remember why you enjoy science in the first place.

I.D.E.A.S. is an electronic academic journal for original undergraduate research in Asian  Studies.  I.D.E.A.S. is accepting submissions for review (see website for entry deadline).    For full details & printable release form (required), please visit the I.D.E.A.S. website at http://ideas.union.edu

The Undergraduate Journals and Conferences Directory encourages undergraduate scholarship by facilitating the development and use of undergraduate publications and conferences. The UJCD lists journals, electronic and paper, and conferences, that will consider undergraduate student essays, research papers, poetry, short fiction, photography, cartoons, art, etc., without regard to the undergraduate student’s institutional affiliation.
