About PURJ

The Princeton Undergraduate Research Journal is Princeton’s first and only peer-reviewed academic journal, highlighting top-quality research performed by Princeton undergraduates across all academic pursuits, including the natural sciences, humanities, engineering, social sciences, and arts. We aim to provide a multidisciplinary forum through which Princeton students can share their scholarly findings and engage with the broader research community. Submitted manuscripts will undergo a rigorous peer review process involving both Princeton undergraduates and faculty.

Although the Princeton Undergraduate Research Journal is a new student publication, we have already received extensive support from prominent professors, who will work with us throughout the year to ensure the quality of our publications by participating in the peer review process. These faculty members span over 20 different academic departments on campus and include Presidents Emeriti Harold Shapiro (ECO) and Shirley Tilghman (MOL), Tony Grafton (HIS), Peter Singer (CHV), Howard Stone (MAE), and Susan Wolfson (ENG), among many others. We have also received the support of many institutional offices at Princeton, including the Office of the Dean of Research, the Office of Undergraduate Research, the Humanities Council, the Lewis Center for the Arts, and the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students.

If you have any questions about the submission process, please feel free to contact us at purj@princeton.edu.
