CALL FOR UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH PAPERS

Have you completed a research paper in a psychology-related field (i.e. psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience, linguistics)? Are you looking for a platform to publish your work?

If so, The Undergraduate Research Journal of Psychology at UCLA (URJP) WANTS YOU to submit your papers for our annual publication, expected to be released Spring 2021.

URJP is an organization dedicated to informing the community of psychological findings through research run by undergraduates from all universities. Last year, we received submissions ranging from local to international universities. URJP is one of the few established psychology journals that publishes undergraduate psychological research.

To submit, the papers must fulfill the requirements below:

  • Original work completed by undergraduates (Includes senior honors theses, independent research, reviews, theoretical papers, and other scholarly writing)

  • Never before been published

If you have not completed an independent research project, we still encourage you to apply by submitting a “literature review article” which does not require access to research data.

The deadline to submit papers is November 15, 2020 at 11:59 P.M. Multiple submissions from one author are welcome. If you would like to submit an article for consideration, please complete the following:

  • Replace any identifying information (i.e. author name, institution) with empty brackets, to ensure anonymity within the selection process

  • In the body of the email, include the following information: (1) your full name, (2) full article title, (3) article type (i.e., literature review, research article), (4) your email address

More information regarding our submission criteria and types of articles accepted can be found on our website, https://urjp.psych.ucla.edu/. To view our prior publications, please visit our website at https://urjp.psych.ucla.edu/publications/.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at psychjournal.ucla@gmail.com for further information. We look forward to reviewing your submissions!
