Dear McNair Scholars,
The deadline to submit your research articles to the 28th Annual Berkeley McNair Research Journal is October 23, 2020. I strongly encourage you to work closely with your faculty mentor in editing your research article and optimizing its integrity prior to submission. Working closely with your faculty mentor will improve your writing skills, build your relationship with your mentor, and increase your chances of publication. Your article editors will be UC Berkeley faculty and staff members who are specialists in your academic disciplines; thus, it is important that your initial submission be as strong as possible.
Publishing in the Berkeley McNair Research Journal is a capstone experience for many McNair Scholars. We believe that publishing as an undergraduate gives you an invaluable opportunity to share your scholarship with the world and strengthen your graduate school applications in the process. We hope that you will make the most of this experience, and we look forward to congratulating you on becoming published authors!
Attached are instructions for formatting and submitting your research article.mcnair_research_journal_submission_guidelines_fall_2021_1.docx Please read these guidelines closely and contact us if you have questions or concerns.
