GENERAL UNDERGRADUATE JOURNALS (ALL DISCIPLINES)

         CUREJ (College Undergraduate Research Electronic Journal)
         The University of Pennsylvania was founded on the principle of uncompromising scholarship and its
         practical application. True to this tradition, the University has long been recognized as one of the nation's
         leading research institutions. Penn's College of Arts and Sciences is proud to be among the first to formally
         support and encourage its undergraduate students to participate in meaningful research with faculty
         mentors. The College Undergraduate Research Electronic Journal presents a sampling of that research and
         celebrates the academic achievements of our young scholars.

         Journal of Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Excellence
         Overseen by the Office for Undergraduate Research and Artistry in the Institute for Learning and Teaching
         at Colorado State University, JUR combines undergraduate and faculty involvement to create a cooperative
         approach to the peer review process. This Library of Congress-registered publication is an exciting
         opportunity for undergraduates to showcase their original work. Since we accept submissions from all
         disciplines of undergraduate study from any accredited institution of higher education, JUR is a truly
         unique journal. Submissions may include original research, abstracts, editorials, reviews, or other creative
         works. Undergraduate associate editors, peer reviewers, and faculty reviewers will rigorously review each
         submission. Any research submission must include a signed letter of notification from the student's faculty
         advisor to ensure that research is not inappropriately or prematurely published.

         ideas, the PUR catalyzes further intellectual innovations and pursuits, thereby energizing the academic
         community. To accomplish these goals, the PUR showcases the best available undergraduate research.
         This is achieved by publishing indiscriminately with regards to location and discipline; the PUR is a
         multidisciplinary journal that accepts papers from around the world. In turn, hardcopies of the journal are
         distributed nation-wide, and the published papers are available via this website.

     Student Pulse
     We believe that students have valuable ideas about the world around us. Unfortunately, most students only
     get to share their best ideas—the ones they write about every day in academic essays and research papers—
     with their Professors, and occasionally their peers. At Student Pulse, we change that dynamic by giving
     students another avenue to share their work. At the same time, Student Pulse is not just an online blog... All
     articles are carefully reviewed, placing a high value on the use of references and the quality of work cited.
     Work that does not meet our high standards is respectfully turned away, with recommendations for
     improvement.

     Student Journal of Latin American Studies (University of Texas, Austin)
     The Student Journal of Latin American Studies is a student-run journal that publishes student’s articles of
     original research on all topics related to Latin America. The authors should keep in mind an audience of
     university students and faculty when writing their paper. The paper must be original research conducted by
     a student, graduate or undergraduate, on any topic related to Latin America. Papers that are the synthesis of
     sources in a new and unique way will be considered for publication. Thus, the article must not be a
     literature review or a reiteration of the ideas of another scholar. Rather it should be an original contribution
     to the existing body of research in its topic; it must fill a knowledge gap. In addition, the paper must be well
     written (organization, wording, and diction are very important) and conform to high academic standards.

     NeoAmericanist
     NeoAmericanist is an inter-disciplinary online journal for the study of America. We are focused on
     reaching out to universities and the general public to create an e-journal that pushes the boundaries of
     scholarship and theory, and blurs the lines between academic disciplines and popular knowledge about
     America. Published bi-annually NeoAmericanist is a journal available for anyone who aspires to participate
     in the study of the United States of America. The journal is run entirely by students across the world and is
     built entirely on the work of a dedicated group of volunteer editors and campus reps. While the majority of
     content published in NeoAmericanist is student work, the journal also aims to bring together established
     scholars, students and the non-academic in conversation over the broad topic of America. Focused on
     bringing together segments of the intellectual community which often remain partitioned by traditional
     publications, NeoAmericanist aims to explore the multiplicity of communities and interests that think about
     America and their relationship to it. Funded by the Students at the University of Western Ontario and the
     Center for American Studies at that institution, NeoAmericanist is a fully Open Access journal and believes
     in the principles of equal access to knowledge regardless of institution or affiliation. The journal is a
     registered member of the Directory of Open Access Journals, the Directory of Undergraduate Journals and
     a registered international publication (ISSN: 1718-2328).

        Public Writing: A Cultural Studies Journal for Undergraduate Writers
        Public Writing: A Cultural Studies Journal for Undergraduate Writers provides a lively and provocative
        online forum for undergraduate writers who are engaged in critique of contemporary, historical, public
        ideas. Student writers from across the humanities and social sciences and around the world are invited to
        submit to Public Writing. A Public Writing submission may work in any of the following fields or combine
        any of the following fields in an interdisciplinary manner: cultural theory, social theory, literary theory,
        cultural anthropology, linguistics, rhetoric studies, historical analysis, sociology, queer studies, disability
        studies, gender studies, philosophy or any other applicable field. Public Writing's open-access format
        allows writers to be exposed to a larger readership. The open-access movement in scholarly publishing
        provides a model whose essence is unlimited availability and use. As such, authors themselves-not
        publishers-retain copyright. Public Writing is being published with the support of both the George
        Washington University and Gelman Library. The editorial group consists of students, faculty, and librarians
        from a number of universities and colleges.

        issues of the day. The unique flavour of this journal has gained the attention of many authorities, including
        NEJM, JAMA and Annals RCPSC, who recognise the value of journal created by students for students. In
        all of its issues, the MJM has strived to strike a delicate balance between original articles, reviews and
        editorial letters. Its goal is to provide its readers with a global perspective of clinical medicine and
        accentuate the pressing social concerns as well as denoting new scientific breakthroughs. The nature of the
        administration of the MJM makes it particularly sympathetic to contributions from students who are just
        beginning their careers in the medical and scientific fields. As such, this journal hopes to encourage
        students to continue their research by providing them with an editorial staff eager to consider their
        submissions. Many students publish their first articles with the MJM and readily recognise that this journal
        served as a launch pad for their future contributions to scientific literature. Furthermore, the MJM is
        continually looking to expand its network and recruit other enthusiastic individuals into its community. The
        MJM staff welcomes anyone eager to participate in this experience either through submissions or technical
        assistance. All questions and comments are welcome.

        Undergraduate Research Journal for the Human Sciences
        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. Undergraduate research not only
        bridges the gap between knowledge and experience but has the benefit of laying the groundwork for career
        exploration and development. The opportunity for undergraduates to publish in a national journal is an
        added value to the overall education experience and to the process of self-discovery. 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.

Political Science, International Affairs & Economics Journals

        Critique: A Worldwide Student Journal of Politics
        Critique provides a forum for graduate and undergraduate students of politics to express and exchange
        diverse ideas and to imagine new possibilities for democracy and justice. The electronic format of Critique
        provides an alternative venue that expands political debate by creating space for the emergence of new
        ideas. Such a medium broadens the horizon for undergraduate and graduate publications and serves to lift
        typically unheard voices in academia. The editors firmly believe that budding scholars introduce valuable
        ideas that must be heard in order to understand the changing nature of our global community.

        Issues in Political Economy: Undergraduate Student Research in Economics
        Issues in Political Economy is committed to supporting and encouraging quality undergraduate research in
        all areas of economics. Now in its 19th volume, the Journal was founded on the belief that the best way to
        learn economics is to do economics. Through the process of research, writing, and peer review, students
        actively engage the discipline in a way not possible by simply listening to lectures and reading textbooks.
        In short, undergraduate research is a vital component in an economics education. The literature suggests
        that students take projects more seriously and learn more when the project is directed towards an external
        rather than an internal audience such as a class assignment. IPE is designed to provide an external audience
        for such research.
