Undergraduate Research Journals

Journal of Undergraduate Research cover

Students! Did you know there are many journals just for undergraduate researchers to publish in? For example, check out the journal above, the Journal of Undergraduate Research. You will, of course, want to check in with your mentor before considering publishing in an undergraduate researcher journal. Some journals are general like the one above but others are very specific. Learn more about undergraduate research journals on the library’s guide.

May 28 Event: CRSP Town Hall on COVID and Global Equity

CUNY Research Scholars Program is offering an exciting program on May 28!

This town hall event, featuring speakers from Brazil, Egypt, Guatemala, Peru, South Africa, and the United States, will be of interest to undergraduate researchers and their mentors, particularly those interested in how the pandemic has affected people in less affluent countries as well as disadvantaged groups in the United States (for example, the incarcerated).
As rich countries vaccinate their populations and prepare to reopen, many poorer countries and vulnerable populations in the US are struggling for vaccine access. On Friday, May 28th, the CUNY Research Scholars Program (CRSP) will host a Town Hall event to discuss the COVID-19 pandemic and global equity issues. 
 
This forum will consist of three panels and include speakers from Brazil, Egypt, Guatemala, Peru, South Africa, and the United States. The US speakers will address vaccine access issues among migrants at the US borders, people in US prisons and jails, and vulnerable populations in US cities.  Speakers will also address the gendered impacts of COVID-19, especially in Venezuela and Colombia. 
 
Please click here for an updated version of the flyer, which contains the schedule of panels, speaker bios, and a registration link.
An abbreviated version of the flyer is attached.
 
This event is free and open to everyone. Please circulate widely within your networks. All faculty, administrators, students, and members of the community are encouraged to attend.
 
We hope to see you on May 28th!
