Students may submit original work that has been presented at a conference, showcase, or capstone course either on their own campus or at a regional/national conference site. The work must have been completed while the student was an undergraduate; the student may submit research within a year after graduating. Original research papers, including those developed in collaboration with faculty mentors, are welcome from all departments and disciplines. Creative works—fiction, creative non-fiction, works of art and poetry—are also welcome, providing the work has been presented at a conference, class, or showcase. Submissions are welcome from students affiliated with colleges and universities in the southeastern United States, including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. The work may not be printed or under consideration by other publications. Faculty in the appropriate discipline will review all submissions.

One other note for Georgetown students: In a city that contains oneof the world’s great research libraries, representations from nearly everycountry on the planet, the headquarters of countless international organizations,numerous research institutes, and scores of other political, economic,cultural, and non-governmental associations and institutions, both domesticand international, there is absolutely no excuse for the complaint that“I can’t find anything on my topic in Lauinger.” Unfortunately, many undergraduate research papers are really no more thanglorified book reports. You know the drill: Check out ten books (in English)from the library, skim through three of them, note down a few facts ormark some pages, combine the information in your own words, and there youhave it.JURP is a resource for undergraduate students and and their mentors, starting at the very beginning of research to the end publication. Students can submit papers and agree to be reviewers, but they can also use JURP as a resource to find summer REU's, learn how to present their research, find out where they can present their research, and find resources on how to best prepare a manuscript for publication.
