Join the JMURJ Editorial Board

Students who enroll in JMURJ courses serve on the James Madison Undergraduate Research Journal Editorial Board and collaborate to promote, publish, and share undergraduate scholarship from all JMU disciplines.

Board members work within and across teams as they develop their particular sets of skills:

  • Marketing/Outreach editors network with university stakeholders, develop publicity initiatives, and create funding opportunities
  • Design editors use the Adobe Creative Suite and other software platforms to design layouts and art for publication in online and print formats
  • Editing editors correspond with student authors, coordinate the efforts of the JMURJ Faculty Review Board, and comprehensively edit text- and media-based submissions from disciplines across the university

The HON 300 JMURJ course is open to all JMU undergraduates in disciplines across the university. The 3-credit seminar may be taken as an Area of Emphasis experiential seminar, a "normal" Honors seminar, or simply as elective credit. Students may also enroll in HON 300 JMURJ as a 1, 2, or 3-credit practicum.

The course meets all experiential seminar and practicum requirements in all Areas of Emphasis (Creativity, Global Studies, Leadership, Research, and Service) and may be repeated for credit.

NOTE: This course requires instructor consent, and applicants should submit a letter of interest. Click here for more information and letter of interest instructions, and contact Kevin Jefferson ( with any questions.
