Lucerna

Lucerna is the UMKC interdisciplinary research journal produced by the Honors College. 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.

In Fall 2020, we will begin seeking submissions for Volume 15. Please see our Submission Guidelines for more information. If you have questions, contact the Editor-in-Chief, Richard Schneider, at richardschneider@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 2021 volume of Lucerna will be presented at the Undergraduate Research Symposium on March 11, 2021. The Symposium will feature presentations by contributors and is open to the public.
