Journals Publishing Undergraduate Research

The emphasis on undergraduate research is one of the distinguishing features of Westminster College's Honors program. One outlet for student research is to publish in journals that emphasize undergraduate writing. Students should work with mentors in individual disciplines to target appropriate outlets for their written work and also consult the Honors director for guidance about submitting their work.
