Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Research Journal

IURJ: Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Research Journal

UIC is home to an open-access Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Research Journal (IURJ), which aims to disseminate the work of UIC’s undergraduate researchers in order to further scientific discovery and scholarly dialogue. It is co-sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Research, the Honors College, the Graduate College, and the University Library and work is underway to publish the next issue in Winter 2019.

Undergraduates, please submit a scholarly or scientific article for publication. The deadline is June 1st. Be sure to work with a faculty member on preparing your manuscript for review, since a faculty member’s endorsement is required as part of the process.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email and a member of the advisory board will get back to you soon.
