  Volume XXII -- Call for Papers
  Deadline: Monday, July 1, 2019

UCI undergraduate students—and undergraduates working under a UCI faculty mentor—who have completed a faculty-mentored research or creative project between the Spring Quarter of 2018 and Summer 2019 are eligible to submit work for publication in the 2019 UCI Undergraduate Research Journal. Your faculty mentor’s approval of the manuscript is required prior to submission. After submission, the UROP Student Editorial Board, composed of undergraduates from all disciplines, provides an initial review of the papers. Guided by this review, the UROP Faculty Advisory Board selects the papers to be published in the Journal.

Regardless of the field of study, all papers published in the Journal have these items in common:
  • The purpose and significance of the research is described clearly for the Journal's multidisciplinary audience.
  • The research project was well designed and executed.
  • The results are thoughtfully interpreted and thoroughly analyzed.
  • The paper is well written, efficiently organized, logically convincing, grammatically correct, and easy to follow.
  • Supporting materials (illustrations, graphs, references, etc.) reinforce the descriptions and claims made in the text.
