Venture: The University of Mississippi Undergraduate Research Journal is seeking submissions from undergraduate students for its 2024 issue. Original research from any academic discipline and grade level is eligible.

Publishing a paper may seem daunting, but many students have already produced work for courses and their thesis that qualifies. Please consider submitting any of the following:

  • Honors theses (Editing for length may be necessary.)
  • Many long-form essays and papers for courses, as well as departmental capstones
  • In STEM disciplines, papers and research from labs, courses, and individual projects 

Venture’s deadline for submissions is March 3, 2024. Submissions may be accepted after that point, on a case-by-case basis. The authors of the two most exceptional pieces will each receive a commemorative award and $500 cash prize.
