Call for Scholarly Contributions to Inquiry Journal
The Office of Undergraduate Research is pleased to announce the relaunch of Inquiry Journal — an online publication aimed at showcasing the cutting-edge undergraduate research and scholarly activity at the U of A. Currently, two issues of the Journal are planned per year. The first issue is tentatively scheduled for publication in August 2021.
Inquiry Journal welcomes contributions from U of A undergraduate students from all disciplines. Eligible contributions include original research articles and presentations (including posters, research blogs, art exhibitions, audio and video presentations of theater and musical performances). In addition, other types of significant undergraduate research contributions and news are also welcome. Inquiry Journal will also include information on research opportunities at other institutions and organizations. Additionally, the Journal will highlight research accomplishments such as awards and scholarships won by undergraduate students.
The deadline for contribution submissions to the first online issue is July 1.
