There are two avenues for submitting your research for publication in the AUJUS: the Research Highlight or a Research Article.
A "Research Highlight" serves as a publication option for students whose research is in progress or who wish to share research results with a broad, general audience. A "Highlight," 1-2 pages in length, is also a good option for students who plan to publish their complete research study in a professional or technical journal in their field.
A "Research Article" is a longer contribution (see guidelines) of original work that embodies quality scholarship. Although it may not capture all the details of a full scholarly project, it serves as a publication option in their discipline. Like the "Research Highlight," it should be understandable to a broad audience of readers.
Research Highlights and Articles can be submitted by Auburn University undergraduate researchers at any time. All submissions will be reviewed for suitability and revision may be requested. Once accepted for publication, Research Articles and Highlights will be published online.
Submissions will be initially screened by editors for quality and appropriateness. Those selected for further consideration will be distributed to reviewers with the appropriate expertise. Authors may be asked to revise contributions. Only those submissions deemed acceptable by the editorial board will be published. Please note that the review process typically takes from 4 to 12 weeks.
Submissions should be no more than 10 double-spaced pages in length (not including illustrations or the Faculty Sponsorship Form) with 1" margins and should follow APA Style. Information on APA Style can be found in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (Sixth Edition) or on the APA Style website. To help provide an unbiased review, authorship information should be removed from the text and included on the article submission form only.
Articles should be ordered as follows:
Materials requiring alternative formatting will be considered upon special request to the editors. For assistance, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
