The James Madison Undergraduate Research Journal seeks to promote, publish, and share the research, scholarship, and intellectual work that undergraduate students produce in and between their different fields of study across James Madison University in all their different genres and media.

We value your countless hours in the field, lab, and library databases. We also value your design, digital scholarship, investigative journalism, case study, policy brief, business plan, statistical analysis, empirical project, elaboration on a mathematical sequence, or researched recital or performance, and other creative projects based in scholarship. If you’ve written, designed, built, performed, or created it at JMU, it falls under the big JMURJ umbrella.

Click here for our text-based and media-based submission guidelines.

We accept, screen/review, and publish submissions on a rolling basis:

  • The sooner you send us your work, the sooner we can begin acting on your submission,
  • This means you'll get speedier feedback on your work from the JMURJ Editorial Board and our team of JMURJ Faculty Reviewers.
  • It also means that you can say more sooner on your résumé, CV, cover letter, personal statement, or application.
