Aim and Scope

The Undergraduate Historical Journal at UC Merced, founded in 2013, aims to provide an outlet for undergraduate students to publish their original research, and in doing so, foster a connection between themselves, their professors, and the larger scholarly community. All submissions are peer-reviewed by our editorial board of undergraduate students, and we accept submissions from any discipline so long as an historical basis is present. As part of UC Merced – the first American research university built in the 21st century – we firmly believe that undergraduate research serves a dual role: first, in polishing students’ abilities in preparation for their work post-graduation; second, in adding brilliant new developments and viewpoints to the current field of historical research.
