Article Submission Guidelines

Fall 2017



The Berkeley McNair Research Journal seeks outstanding research articles of 2000-3500 words for our Spring 2018 issue. We invite all Berkeley McNair Scholars, across departments and disciplines, to revise their McNair research articles and submit them for publication. Articles must be received by 8 p.m. on Friday, October 27, 2017, to be considered for the Spring 2018 issue. 


The Editorial Board expects that all submissions will be polished and exemplify high-quality and original undergraduate scholarship. In order to be eligible for submission, articles must have received a ‘B’ letter grade or higher from the student’s faculty mentor, and the same mentor should approve the paper for publication.


Below you will find the timeline and procedures for submission.  Please read these instructions completely and carefully, and contact Karina Palau at if you have questions.
