Student Editorial Board Volume XII, 2018

Each fall quarter, students are nominated by their College as candidates to serve on the Student Editorial Board (SEB) of the UCR Undergraduate Research Journal. Nominees are contacted and given the opportunity to apply. The Faculty Advisory Board selects SEB members from the applications. The SEB meets to choose the Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editor-in-Chief(s).

SEB Board Members gain hands on experience in the publication of the Journal.  They work closely with the Faculty Advisory Board members as well as several undergraduate researchers and their faculty mentors. Serving on an editorial board is a wonderful experience for students contemplating careers in research and creative scholarship.

Students who are involved in faculty mentored research, scholarly or creative projects will be invited to submit their articles for the review by the Student Editorial Board, working with guidance from the Faculty Advisory Board.  Additional information about the Journal and copies of the UCR Undergraduate Research Journal, Volumes I - X, can be found on the left menu.
