Call for submissions: The Colonial Academic Alliance Undergraduate Research Journal



The Colonial Academic Alliance Undergraduate Research Journal adds to the body of knowledge in all fields and showcases the outstanding scholarship of our undergraduates. It provides a forum for students to publicly share their research, offering opportunities for presenting their work to potential graduate programs and employers. Undergraduates also participate in the scholarly publishing process by reviewing submitted articles and shaping the journal’s content.

The Journal welcomes submissions of individual and collaborative research work in all disciplines. Keep in mind the following requirements:

  • The work must be completed while the author is enrolled as an undergraduate student at one of the Alliance institutions: The University of Delaware, Drexel University, George Mason University, Georgia State University, James Madison University, University of North Carolina Wilmington, Northeastern University, Old Dominion University, Towson University, Virginia Commonwealth University, or The College of William and Mary.
  • Faculty-mentored research papers and theses from all disciplines will be considered.
  • Submitters to the journal must own the copyright to the work being submitted.

There are three issues of the journal to date, and the overall acceptance rate over that period is 40%.

Articles published in the journal are easily accessible and frequently located through search engines.  The overall most downloaded article, published in 2010, Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Continued Effects on the Alaskan Economy, has been downloaded over 4600 times!
