2003 Call for Papers


We are proud to announce the Call for Papers for the Sixth Annual UCI Undergraduate Research Journal. The Journal publishes a compilation of exceptional research papers submitted by UCI undergraduate students. Established to recognize the research achievements of UCI undergraduates, the Journal provides students with an opportunity to share their research with the University and the larger community. It also showcases the high-caliber research being conducted at UCI in all schools and disciplines and reflects the University's dedication to undergraduate education. We invite you to review previous issues of the Journal, now available on the UROP Web site: www.urop.uci.edu/journal.html.

Undergraduate students who have completed a research project between the Spring Quarter of 2002 and June 6, 2003 are eligible to submit work for publication in the 2003 Journal. Manuscripts must be typed and double-spaced and may be up to 25 pages in length, including any relevant graphics. The manuscript should be submitted with all supplemental application materials and forms. The deadline for manuscript submission is Monday, June 30, 2003.

Faculty review and approval of your manuscript is required prior to submission. We ask that you keep your faculty mentor updated through all stages of manuscript preparation. After submission, the UROP Student Editorial Board, comprised of undergraduates from all disciplines, will provide an initial review of the papers. Guided by this review, the UROP Faculty Advisory Board will select the papers to be published in the Journal.

The attached packet includes the Journal Application and Manuscript Submission Form plus handouts regarding submission guidelines, how to get published, proper citation, appropriate writing style and how to finalize your submission to UROP. The Journal is sponsored by the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) in the Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE). If you have any questions or need further clarification on the guidelines, please feel free to contact the UROP Office by phone: (949) 824-4189, or by e-mail: urop@uci.edu.

We encourage your active involvement in undergraduate research at UCI, and wish you good luck and continued success in all of your research endeavors.
