Types of articles

PURM’s unique emphasis on the processes of undergraduate research and mentoring and its wide audience creates an opportunity to expand the types of articles it publishes beyond the traditional research article.

  • Dialogues – co-authored pieces written by faculty or graduate student mentors and/or undergraduate researchers that a) critically reflect upon the process, challenges, concerns associated with the evolution of a particular research project or program, or b) present a themed group discussion on an undergraduate research-relevant issue from multiple perspectives across institutions and disciplines. (Peer Reviewed)
  • Student Perspectives – student-authored pieces (individual or group authored) on a specific aspect of the undergraduate research and/or mentoring experience that may be impactful for other students. (Peer Reviewed)
  • Research Articles – empirical studies or literature reviews on best practices in undergraduate research and mentoring. (Peer Reviewed)
  • Invited Viewpoints – editor-invited pieces by experts in the areas of undergraduate research, undergraduate research program development, undergraduate research program administration, undergraduate research mentoring, etc. (Reviewed by Editor)
