Lucerna

Lucerna is the UMKC interdisciplinary research journal produced by the Honors Program. Introduced in 2006, the journal has published the scholarship of 140 undergraduates and accepts papers that students in all UMKC programs have written for their classes.

We now are seeking submissions for Volume 17, to be published in March 2023. Please see our Submission Guidelines for more information. If you have questions, contact Editor-in-Chief  Lee Francis at lmfmwr@mail.umkc.edu.

Each submission to Lucerna is evaluated in a blind review process by the student staff.  Papers are judged for clarity, originality, organization, and argumentative qualities.

The fifteenth volume of Lucerna was presented at the Lucerna Symposium on March 11, 2021. The Symposium featured presentations by contributors and was open to the public.
