The UCR Undergraduate Research Journal is a student-led, faculty-advised research publication for all undergraduate research and academic articles ranging from the, but not limited to, social sciences, humanities, engineering, physical and biological sciences. The UCR Undergraduate Research Journal provides undergraduate student researchers an outlet to publish their own academic work in a student-edited multidisciplinary journal that features the very best faculty-mentored undergraduate research and scholarship accomplished on our campus. The Journal provides students the opportunity to get involved in research and the publication process. In addition, student editors, with guidance from the faculty advisory board, get the unique opportunity to participate in the reviewing process as well. The journal seeks to enhance academic and professional development for undergraduate students by strengthening their abilities through the journal process. This peer-reviewed process is managed by the Student Editorial Board (SEB) with guidance from the Faculty Advisory Board (FAB), and logistical support from Undergraduate Education's Education Initiatives. The Journal is sponsored by the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education.
