The Indiana University Journal of Undergraduate Research is a student-run, faculty-mentored undergraduate research publication for Indiana University.
Founded in August 2013 by a group of IU Bloomington students, the journal seeks to recognize and encourage the exceptional undergraduate research work happening in all fields at IU. “We look to highlight research from the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities and professional schools,” explains Kristie Hsu, IUJUR co-editor in chief.
The first volume of IUJUR, which is open source, went live in June 2015 and is available at iujur.indiana.edu. “I would definitely not have the same experiences or abilities to do this sort of thing at other universities,” says Peyton Joachim, an IUJUR contributing author. “It feels really great to be one of the first people published in this journal.” The journal is supported by IU’s Office of the Vice Provost of Undergraduate Education.
