Announcing Online Undergraduate Research Journal for the Human
This online journal implements the
plan to develop an electronic journal to reflect excellent undergraduate
research in the human sciences. The Undergraduate Research community for the
Human Sciences has a commitment to make this journal visible and compare in
quality with similar publications in the natural sciences, engineering, and
psychology. It is intended that this journal will be a testament to
undergraduate research and curricular innovation in the human sciences.
Although the first deadline was
January 15, 2002, submissions are accepted for review on an ongoing
basis. Presenters at the first Undergraduate Research Conference (8/01) and
other undergraduates that have completed research are invited to submit papers
for Volume 2 - 2003. Graduate students may submit papers if the work was completed as
an undergraduate student.
There are no affiliation
requirements; all undergraduates conducting research in the human sciences are
eligible to submit papers. Papers may represent a full range of research,
including quantitative, qualitative, and action research. Papers are classified
as (a) research manuscript, (b) research paper, and (c) research reports. See Guidelines
Request: Please distribute copies
of the Call for Papers to faculty
engaged with undergraduate researchers. The success of this journal
depends on the enthusiastic participation of human sciences units
and the diverse programs within their umbrella missions. Thank you
in advance for your support.
