Aims & Scope

Students from any academic discipline submit work in one of four categories (Research Manuscripts, Creative Scholarship, Scholarly Notes, and Service-Learning Analyses), which is then reviewed by an interdisciplinary editorial board consisting of faculty and students. Student authors work carefully with discipline-specific faculty mentors prior to submission.

Research Manuscripts: Traditional, original research papers generated from research courses (e.g. research methods course; senior capstone course; final course project, etc.), summer projects, or other research projects, up to 25-pages in length. This category represents original research projects.

Creative Scholarship: Creative writing, visual art, vocal performance, film, or recorded performance, including image-, audio-, video-, or multimedia-based submissions. This category represents any form or discipline of creative scholarship, including fine arts disciplines and creative representations of traditional research. We especially encourage interdisciplinary creative work that might expand the traditional notion of scholarship.

Scholarly Note: Scholarly work taken from a course assignment or research project related in some way to the research process (e.g. literature reviews; book reviews; scholarly essays; laboratory reports; art criticism; research field reports; clinical observations; laboratory reports, etc.) up to 15-pages in length. The goal of this category is to publish student work that represents some stage or component of the research experience.
