Do you have an undergraduate research project you want to publish?

The Council for Undergraduate Research’s CUR Quarterly is seeking student submissions for its Spring 2013 Issue!

Deadline for submitting a proposal: June 1, 2012

The theme of the Spring 2013 issue of the CUR Quarterly will be “Students Voices in Undergraduate Research.” 

The publication seeks several student authors who can write articles that focus on students' experiences engaging in undergraduate research.

The CUR Quarterly encourage articles that explore, among other things:

·        What other students, faculty, and administrators should know about undergraduate research from the perspective of students
·        Advice and practical tips for students who want to do research
·        What every undergraduate research mentor should know
·        How to navigate and succeed at a summer undergraduate research experience (on your campus or at another campus)
·        How to conduct undergraduate research in a study-abroad program
·        Perspectives on presenting your research at conferences

If you are interested in contributing an article or vignette, please submit a short (300-500 word) prospectus describing the focus of your proposed article or vignette by June 1, 2012. Click here for the website. 

Please also submit a copy of your prospectus to the Center for Undergraduate Fellowships and Research at; we would very much like to hear the stories you have to tell!

Decisions on invitations for full papers to be published in the CUR Quarterly will be made by June 15, 2012.

Final articles will be about 1500 to 2000 words in length.  The final text for review and editing must be submitted by August 1, 2012.
