Spectra Undergraduate Research Journal

Spectra Undergraduate Research Journal by the Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) is currently accepting manuscripts for its Spring 2021 issue to be published in June 2021.

Spectra is a bi-annual (i.e., fall and spring issues), peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary, open-access journal primarily dedicated to the publication of undergraduate student research at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. If and when possible, Spectra also publishes well-qualified undergraduate research from other institutions.

OUR offers workshops on how to write abstracts, annotate bibliographies, cite properly, prepare manuscripts for publication, and review manuscripts for publication, encompassing many stages of the writing spectrum.

To sign up for these workshops, please go to OUR's Research Skills Academy page.
