UReCA is a national Web journal of undergraduate research and creative activity, sponsored by the National Collegiate Honors Council. Select the category that best fits your work and upload your files there. We are a double-blind peer-reviewed journal so please remove all identifying marks from the files and file names. Should you have any questions about the submission process please email us at editor@nchc-ureca.com.

In regard to formatting, we prefer MLA styling for the humanities/creative works and APA styling for all other categories. For text files, please double-space and use page numbering. A font such as Times should be used. For text that is accompanied by graphics, we may ask that you send those files unembedded within your document.

Our panel of editors may request that certain edits be implemented as a condition of publication.

Please submit your work here for Science and Technology pieces

UReCA is looking for the highest quality undergraduate academic submissions. A text will be judged on the quality of three components: analysis, content, and organization. Analysis should display a clear, independent voice that creates a compelling argument. You should use an appropriate number of scholarly sources as well. A successful paper addresses current and relevant issues in its respective field, while maintaining accessibility for a general audience. The argument should be engaging and cohesive, following a logical progression of thought; effective arguments are augmented by precise and eloquent language. Grammar, readability, proper formatting, and general correctness of the content of an entry will also determine its success. The UReCA Peer Review Board looks forward to your submission.

Suggested maximum word count is 7,500. Do not include any identifying information in the document or in the file name.

 Make sure you include:

  • Letter from faculty adviser (here)
  • Cover Letter
