Inaugural issue of undergrad research journal released Friday at C-Haus

May 1, 2014

The inaugural issue of the Beloit Undergraduate Research Journal will be released Friday (May 2).

Editors will post an open-access version online at and will hand out hard copies at C-Haus from 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. Friday, at the final Hoptimistic Thoughts of the semester. All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to attend and pick up a copy of the BURJ while supplies last.  (You can read about the journal in the news section of the latest issue of Beloit College Magazine, available here.)

“We hope that by broadly disseminating the journal we can create transparency and dialogue for the kind of work we are doing at Beloit,” says BURJ Editor-in-Chief Nathan Omans’14.

An editorial board of 11 students has been working for the past eight months to put this project together in a way that it can continue for years to come.

“The subjects of our papers are as diverse as the Beloit curriculum,” Omans says. “We received a total of 17 submissions and accepted seven. We have been working closely with the authors through the peer-review process.”

The authors for this issue include:

  • Traci Spacek
  • Cameron LeViere
  • Hannah Richter
  • Josh Smith
  • Katherine Ptaszek
  • Thorin Blitz
  • Emily Vogelhuber
