What kind of work do we take?
We accept any work created in an undergraduate class at Missouri State for consideration. A student does not need to be currently enrolled, as long as the work was created while the author was a Missouri State undergraduate student. Additionally, the work must have been turned into an MSU faculty member for a grade. Faculty may also partner with students in submissions, but the student must be the primary author.
Please note submissions must be your original work. As a multidisciplinary journal, we welcome submissions from every field of study. This includes literature, astronomy, art, poetry, business, education, biology, history, and more. Submissions can take many forms, including the following:
- Empirical research
- Research that demonstrates new methods of serving or applying existing knowledge
- Replications of previous works if executed in a thorough, scholarly manner. For example, a historical recreation of a famous experiment with commentary on scientific methods used at the time.
- Exceptional review articles, essays, abridged versions of term papers, or other contributions based on primary or secondary sources
- Short critical notes that show viewpoints or insights related to previously published work
- Artistic production relatable to a recognized academic field. This includes, but is not exclusive to, creative writing, painting, ceramics, photography. Missouri State University views creative works as academic research.
