UFJUR is published twice per year. UF JUR gives scholars a voice for their research in the arts and humanities, social, behavioral, education, STEM and medicine. Students submit their work with faculty/mentor approval.
Each paper goes through a double blind peer-review process with experts in the discipline of the article topic. If the article is selected, the author will be asked to submit a revised version of the work before being accepted for publication. For this reason, it is important that authors provide up-to-date contact information.
This journal is published in the fall and spring. Submissions are due on April 1st of any given year, per USP requirements.
This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
UF JUR publishes two issues per year. Current undergraduate students from all majors who work with a faculty mentor are welcome to submit their article for publication.
The University of Florida is committed to creating a community that reflects the rich racial, cultural, and ethnic diversity of the state and nation. The Journal of Undergraduate Research contributes to this mission by promoting inclusivity through supporting open access; actively encouraging greater representation across cultures, backgrounds, and viewpoints; and fostering transparency and openness throughout the publishing cycle.
To further our goals of diversity and inclusivity, it is recommended that authors, reviewers, and editors consider the following:
In January of 2020, CUR along with the JUR Editor, Michelle Leonard, conducted a workshop on how to submit to JUR. Please watch the video below to learn about the submission process.
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission’s compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
Some journals stipulate that submitted articles cannot be under consideration for publication or published in another journal. The student-author and mentor have the option of determining which journal the paper will be submitted to first. UF JUR accepts papers that have been published in other journals or might be published in the future. It is the responsibility of the student-author and mentor to determine whether another journal will accept a paper that has been published in UF JUR.
