The theme of the spring 2015 CUR Quarterly will focus on assessment of undergraduate research. We hope to attract four to five articles that report on innovative practices for assessing undergraduate research. We are especially interested in how institutions are assessing the Characteristics of Excellence in Undergraduate Research (COEUR) as outlined in the 2012 CUR publication. In addition, we welcome shorter vignettes (300 words) that offer concrete, creative suggestions with regard to any aspect of assessing undergraduate research. Examples of topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
If you are interested in contributing an article or vignette, please submit a short (300-500 words) prospectus describing the focus of your proposed article or vignette online at http://curq.msubmit.net by April 7, 2014. Accepted authors will be notified by April 14, 2014.
Submissions for the "Undergraduate Research Highlights" feature of the Summer 2014 issue of the CUR Quarterly are being accepted until March 15, 2014. Highlights consist of brief descriptions of recent (past six months) peer-reviewed research or scholarly publications in scholarly journals, book and book chapters, web-based publications, and juried performances. These publications must be in print and must include one or more undergraduate co-authors. To be considered for publication as an Undergraduate Research Highlight, the following information must be submitted:
ITEMS TO INCLUDE:
-Title of the article and full journal citation (inclusive pages).
-A brief description (3-5 lines) of the research and its significance.
-Title and department or program affiliation of the faculty member.
-A brief description of the student co-author(s). Include the year of study in which the student(s) undertook the work, the opportunity through which the work was undertaken, (independent study project, summer project, REU program, senior thesis project, etc.), and the current status of the student (graduate school, employed, still enrolled, etc).
-The source of funding for the work.
Submissions selected for inclusion will be posted to the Highlights portion of CUR's web site.
Submissions must be highlights from research published in peer-reviewed journals. Undergraduate Research Journals or Conference Abstracts are generally not accepted. Should you have any questions regarding the eligibility of your highlight, please send your question to the Editor by email (Marie Graf, email@example.com).
