CUR Quarterly – a journal for undergraduate research mentors

Posted by Laura Guertin

For those that are currently mentoring or planning to mentor undergraduate student researchers in the future, I hope this peer-reviewed journal is on your radar – the CUR Quarterly.

Council on Undergraduate Research Quarterly [CUR Quarterly] serves as the official public “voice” of CUR to both its members and to a broader community. Its purpose is to provide useful and inspiring information about student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship from all types of institutions. — From CURQ Facts & FAQ

The journal publishes four times a year on effective mentoring practices for students at all stages, in all disciplines, and across all institution types. Each issue also has an International Perspectives column with outstanding articles focusing on international viewpoints, innovations, and developments in undergraduate research and inquiry.

curqsmallHere are examples of some of the articles freely available online, which you may want to add to your summer reading list. More articles (going back to 2007) are available on the CUR Quarterly website.

If you have assessed a model of mentoring undergraduate student researchers, or have a best practice to share, please consider sharing your work with the community and submit to the CUR Quarterly.
