Welcome to the website for the Undergraduate Journal of Service Learning and Community-Based Research, a new, refereed, multidisciplinary, online undergraduate journal that will advance knowledge in new scholarly arenas by presenting intellectual and reflective work by undergraduates.
The Undergraduate Journal of Service Learning and Community-Based Research adds to the increasing number of scholarly journals that invite undergraduates to pursue their own intellectual projects. We seek undergraduate contributions to the burgeoning academic conversation on service learning and community-based research.
The Undergraduate Journal of Service Learning and Community-Based Research is open to undergraduate students in the U.S. and across the globe in all subject areas. All submissions will undergo a rigorous review process.
Note to Faculty
We strongly encourage faculty to exercise professional judgment about the quality of work they encourage students to submit to the journal. We strongly discourage faculty from requiring students to submit papers for course credit. We have limited reviewing resources since we are a volunteer editorial staff of faculty and students. We ask that faculty carefully mentor students so that only papers of sufficient quality that have a chance of publication are submitted. If we realize that we're receiving submissions required for course credit, we will de-prioritize reading those submissions, which would mean that even the best of them might not be considered for the journal.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Please e-mail Jill Burk (firstname.lastname@example.org), Editor, with all inquiries.
The Undergraduate Journal of Service Learning and Community-Based Research is supported through the Center for Service Learning and Community-Based Research at Pennsylvania State University, Berks.
