The editorial team seeks submissions from undergraduates for the new Undergraduate Journal of Service Learning and Community-Based Research. Undergraduate Journal of Service Learning and Community-Based Research is a refereed, multi-disciplinary, online undergraduate journal open to all undergraduate students in the U.S. and across the globe. The journal is dedicated to publishing the intellectual and reflective work by undergraduates on service learning, community-based research, and all related curriculum- and/or research-based public community engagement activities. These go by many additional names, such as community-based learning, public scholarship, publicly-engaged learning/teaching, etc. The editorial team of Undergraduate Journal of Service Learning and Community-Based Research encourages undergraduates to pursue their own intellectual projects and to join the academic conversation.
The journal invites submissions in five categories:
