URJe Journal

The Undergraduate Research Journal (URJe) is a multi-modal, multi-disciplinary, refereed annual publication for undergraduate research and creative works, open to undergraduate students from all universities.

URJe is committed to showcasing student works of inquiry and investigation in a variety of genres – research articles, essays, case studies, reviews, creative writing, documentaries, entrepreneurial proposals, .pdfs of poster presentations and audio/visual recordings of various artistic forms of expression. 

The URJe Editorial Board, consisting of faculty members from different disciplines, reviews all submissions and publishes a selection of works that make an original intellectual or creative contribution at a high level of scholarship and expression.

To submit a piece for publication, please check the Submission Guidelines. URJe accepts submissions of work done within a course or outside of a course. The subject does not have to be related to the conference theme.

By submitting your work for consideration, you are granting permission for the work to be published.  Publication in URJe does not preclude seeking other publication venues. If you have already submitted your work to another publication, or you wish to publish elsewhere, you must notify the Editorial Board at urje@aucegypt.edu to clarify copyright issues.

We encourage you to submit your best work for review and possible publication.
