Founded in 2010, the Midwest Journal of Undergraduate Research (MJUR) (ISSN: 2160-9357) is a multidisciplinary scholarly journal produced by a team of Monmouth College student editors and faculty members with peer and faculty (or experts in the field) reviewers for each article. Scholars from a variety of colleges and universities contribute to the manuscript review process. Our mission is to support development of high-quality original undergraduate research, recognize exceptional undergraduate scholarly efforts and accomplishments, and contribute to the undergraduate learning experience. MJUR accepts submissions from all academic fields and from any undergraduate institution, national or international. New volumes of MJUR are published annually in print and online. MJUR is indexed in EBSCO Academic Search Ultimate, and full-text is available on the MJUR website (for free).
