Welcome to the URJ

The Undergraduate Research Journal strives to recognize IU South Bend undergraduates for their scholarly accomplishments, to stimulate their future academic endeavors and to provide an opportunity for them to present their original research in a multidisciplinary, refereed journal. 

This journal showcases the best of IU South Bend’s research writing as evaluated by the authors’ peers and offers undergraduate students at IUSB  a prestigious outlet for publication of their work.

The staff also hopes to facilitate faculty and undergraduate student interactions through the publication of student research as we progress through the 2015-2016 school year.

The Undergraduate Research Journal is currently looking for student editors to review submissions.  If you are interested in working on a team of editors for the Journal, please contact this year's Editor in Chief, Christine Deutscher, at
