Journal Purpose Statement

Kappa Omicron Nu's Undergraduate Research Journal for the Human Sciences 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.
