To create a future where undergraduate student scholars have the opportunity and resources they need to have their contributions impact the world.
FIU’s First Undergraduate Research Journal
As trailblazers of our own, we are expanding FIU’s scholarship by creating a platform for promising undergraduate scholars to gain early and constructive experience in publishing academic research. This leads to an exponential growth of both student involvement in academia as well as the generation of research of the university as a whole as they become well versed in the creation of research through the feedback they receive and experiences they have.
Student to Student Collaboration
Student writers have the opportunity to work with student editors during the drafting process before submission and during the revising process after receiving feedback about their submitted manuscripts. This unique opportunity allows student writers to experience the publishing process while receiving the support they need at every step of the way towards publishing their research.
Open Access Multidisciplinary Research
The research which is published in FIUURJ is both from the diverse range of university subjects and freely available to the higher education community as a whole. This ensures that student scholarship reaches as far as it needs to in order for it to impact and enrich their respective fields.
As FIU’s first undergraduate research journal, FIUURJ is committed to providing a platform for the creative and intellectual achievements of undergraduate students in STEM, the social sciences, art, and the humanities. Our multidisciplinary research aims to foster a community of diverse perspectives in higher education that is run by and for undergraduate students. We also provide students with the unique opportunity to work alongside student editors in the writing process of their manuscript, giving them firsthand experience in the publishing process and ensuring they have the resources they need to successfully research. These roles contribute to FIU’s students’ experience and amplify their voices.
