Undergraduate students at Missouri University of Science and Technology now have the opportunity to publish their research in a peer-reviewed journal called “Peer to Peer.” The journal, which includes peer-reviewed research articles written by undergraduates who were enrolled in English 1160 the spring 2015 semester, published its first issue in February.
The inaugural edition of “Peer to Peer” features articles from undergraduates in applied mathematics, computer science, computer engineering, biology, electrical engineering and English. The current edition can be accessed through Google Scholar or Digital Commons. It can also be found at scholarsmine.mst.edu/peer2peer.
Students in English 1160 learn research strategies and conduct research in their degree program. Each student in the class submits an article to the journal for review. The submissions are double-blind reviewed by students in the class the following semester. The top-reviewed articles are edited and approved by Dr. Jossalyn Larson, assistant teaching professor of English and technical communication and editor-in-chief of the journal. After approval, the authors prepare their manuscripts for publication.
“‘Peer to Peer’ will stand as a testament to the exceptional research conducted by Missouri S&T’s undergraduate students,” says Dr. Daniel Reardon, assistant professor of English and technical communication at S&T.
The journal is sponsored by the English and technical communication department at S&T and the Curtis Laws Wilson Library. It will be published biannually through Bepress Digital Commons and the Missouri S&T Scholars’ Mine.
The following articles are included in the first edition:
