The Journal of Undergraduate Research and Scholarly Excellence is one of the Institutional Volunteer Programs that the Autonomous University of Yucatán (UADY) offers to their students.
It is a convention between UADY and Colorado State University that started more than four years ago.
The peer-reviewed international-reaching Journal was founded in 2009 with its base in Colorado State University and it is registered with the Library of Congress. It is printed annually and run entirely by undergraduates.
It is managed by a group of students from both universities who aim to promote the publication of research papers from all disciplines and artwork made by college students.
The head of the program at UADY is the English Language Teaching degree student Raquel Salazar Chablé, along with Eugenia Teresita Bazán Aguilar and Andrés Canul Mendoza, who work as a team to achieve the program’s objectives.
JUR accepts research, reviews, journalism articles, creative writing (including fiction, non-fiction, poetry and prose), photography and visual arts, but it is not limited to these type of works. The Journal evaluates writing quality, content, novelty, style, and attention to detail.
Students who publish their work on the Journal gain valuable experience within the publication process, improve their work through peer-review and receive a copy of their work in print. The submission process is fairly easy, and students can read all about the publishing at www.jurpress.org, the official website of this Journal.
To guide authors through the process easier and to solve any doubts, staff members can be reached on Facebook by searching “@JURUADY”.
