Press Release

New Journal Announced

East Lansing, Michigan . . . . Announcing Online Undergraduate Research Journal for the Human Sciences.

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 for Submissions.

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.
