Yes; however, a senior/ honors thesis will undergo a slightly different review process, wherein we ask the professors on your committee whether your paper is ready for publication. If they yes, then we will gladly accept it. However, please be advised that due to the lengthy nature of such papers and high printing costs, your manuscript will only be available on our online version of our journal and not in our physical print copy (we will however note in the physical copy that your manuscript is available online).
What is the difference between the people published in JUR and the people who serve as editors for JUR?
The individuals published in JUR have been selected based on the quality of their submissions and positive reviews from Content Editors. Furthermore, submissions are sent to faculty members of supporting departments for professorial reviews, which helps JUR decide whether or not to proceed with the editorial and publication processes.
People who serve on the staff of JUR are not necessarily published in JUR, though it does not preclude individuals, excepting the editors-in-chief, from submitting to JUR. Staff are allowed to submit, since authors are protected and anonymized in the editorial process. Staff members are editors and work on pieces submitted by people who are to be published in JUR.
Can I submit to JUR and to peer-reviewed research journals?
If your work is accepted for publication in JUR and in another research journal, we congratulate you on your success! JUR is happy to publish any work that you have created which is also published in another journal. However, please note that many academic journals have restrictions on multiple submissions, so look over the other journals' guidelines and regulations before you decide to submit to JUR.
How do I become an editor?
We recruit editors at the beginning of each semester. Anyone interested in JUR is encouraged to sign up for our mailing list at the September and January activities fairs. We will send out an email to everyone on our mailing list in mid-September (Fall) or early February (Spring) to advertise our General Interest Meeting, where you will be assigned to an editor team for the following semester. Past editors who wish to return should plan on attending at least one General Interest Meeting during the academic year.
What is it like being an editor for JUR?
All editors starts out as Content Editor (CE) assigned to a team with 4-6 other CEs under the supervision of a Managing Editor (ME). CEs are among the first to review articles submitted for each semester's issue on criteria such as relevance to the given field, professionalism, originality, and grammar usage. When articles are accepted for publication, Content Editors are each given an article to edit by their Managing Editor. All editors submit their reviews and edits to their ME within 10-14 day time frames. Content Editors are also expected to participate in small biweekly group meetings with their editing team, during which they discuss recently reviewed submissions.
