About This JournalThe Journal of Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Research (JIUR ) was established in 2009, after Rob Coombs, professor of psychology and editor-in chief of the JIUR, attended a workshop hosted by Psi Chi (the International Honor Society of Psychology) that provided the information necessary for producing a journal at the university level. He brought the idea to the School of Education and Psychology at Southern Adventist University and was met with enthusiasm. After several years of careful planning the dream became a reality. Southern became the first Adventist university in the United States to produce a scholarly research journal.
The purpose of the JIUR is to offer undergraduate students the chance to expose their research to a larger audience. The School of Education and Psychology hopes that by publishing scholarly work from a variety of disciplines, a diverse dialogue of Southern’s intellect will be showcased. The focus is continually on demonstrating academic excellence.
Now in its fifth year of publication the JIUR can offer students who submit their work for consideration the chance to be published globally. Although the JIUR is currently being shared with a number of Adventist universities and local colleges Knowledge Exchange has allowed the JIUR to gain a world audience, which has resulted in greater exposure of the research being produced by undergraduate students at Southern.
