Undergraduate Research Journal

Each year the UNK Undergraduate Research Council publishes selected examples of student scholarly writing in the Undergraduate Research Journal. Any paper written by a UNK undergraduate student is eligible for consideration. However, the papers can be co-authored by other students and faculty. The undergraduate must be lead author.

Full, printed copies of past issues of this journal are available in the Calvin T. Ryan Library. Past years’ tables of contents are available below.

Submissions will be requested through the faculty in early spring. Students should submit their papers directly to the chair of the appropriate department. Each department -- using a process they determine -- can select up to four papers for submission to the Undergraduate Research Council. Once approved selected papers will then be submitted online Undergraduate Research Journal by April 28, 2023. Papers will be reviewed by experts in their respective fields.
