Publishing Your Work
Publishing in journals and presenting at conferences are common ways that researchers share their findings with the academic community. Undergraduate researchers interested in publishing an article in a scholarly journal are encouraged to consult with their research mentor. The Undergraduate Research office maintains a listing of undergraduate research and literary journals as a resource for students. Each title is hyperlinked to the journal's website. Your research mentor may recommend that you consider submitting your manuscript elsewhere.
Academic writing is different from writing for non-scholarly audiences. MSU's Writing Center is a fantastic resource. Many undergraduate researchers also use reference works like The Bedford Handbook, The Craft of Research, and They Say, I Say.
Have you had an article or creative writing accepted for publication? Be sure to let us know and we'll profile your accomplishment here on the Undergraduate Research website.
