The University of Michigan Undergraduate Research Journal is a student-run, non-technical research journal. Their mission is to build connections between undergraduate students, graduate students, and the public, as well as among the different academic disciplines, through the publication of non-technical articles in all fields of research. They aim to tap student creativity and effort in all academic disciplines through a peer-edited, faculty-reviewed electronic and print publication. They hope to inspire interest in research in the student body, faculty, and the campus community.
The goal of the URJP has been to serve undergraduate students who are interested and involved in psychology-related research by providing a peer-reviewed platform that fosters a collaborative environment where undergraduates can receive mentorship from graduate students in psychology-related fields. Undergraduate authors are provided with the opportunity to share their work with peers and gain editorial feedback, while our UCLA undergraduate editorial committee members are provided with the opportunity to develop and refine their skills in critical thinking, reading, and evaluating research manuscripts.
