Publish your work in the Undergraduate Research Journal

If you are writing a class paper or doing a Capstone Project, consider submitting it to the IU South Bend Undergraduate Research Journal. Papers from all disciplines are accepted. It can be a paper that you have done anytime as a student here at IUSB. Also, if you have ever had interest in being an editor for an academic journal, this is a great opportunity.

This journal showcases the best of IU South Bend’s research writing as evaluated by the authors’ peers and offers undergraduate students at IUSB a prestigious outlet for publication of their work.

The staff also hopes to facilitate faculty and undergraduate student interactions through the publication of student research as we progress through the 2016-2017 school year.

The submission deadline for the 2016-2017 school year journal is February 1, 2017 at 11:59pm. If you have any interest in publishing in the URJ, or would like to serve as an Editor, or both, visit the web page at
