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 and should use an appropriate number of scholarly sources. 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 an entry will also determine its success. The UReCA Peer Review Board looks forward to your submission.

Submissions may not exceed 7,500 words. Do not include any identifying information in the document or in the file name.

Make sure to include a brief description of  your piece. If your piece is selected, this 50-150 word blurb may used in navigation sections.

Submissions for the 2018 edition closed on August 10th. All submissions after that date will be considered for the 2019 edition
