  • Publishing your work

    Publishing Opportunities

    There are publishing opportunities available for undergraduate researchers both within UW-L and nationwide.

    UW-L Journal of Undergraduate Research (JUR)

    UW-L offers undergraduate students an opportunity to publish their work.  Students may submit a final report detailing the research problem, methodology, data or information gathered, and final results. The deadline for submission is the last week of May, or within seven days of the completion of final exam week.

    If any questions about content and format arise, please do not hesitate to contact the Editor-In-Chief, Scott Cooper, UW-L Office of Undergraduate Research and Creativity, 223 Graff Main Hall, 785-6983,  scooper@uwlax.edu .  Final manuscripts must be submitted electronically as Microsoft Word files to Dr. Cooper.

    Formatting

    General writing format varies among disciplines and journals.  Speak to your faculty mentor or someone in your college to find out which guidelines you should be following.  Purdue's Online Writing Lab (OWL) is a great resource for writers to explore common formats.

    Plagiarism

    Plagiarism is a very serious charge, and a mistake that many students make accidentally. The Murphy Library is an excellent resource to consult if you are at all unsure about a citation.
