Lucerna


Lucerna
is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal produced by the UMKC Honors College. It is UMKC’s only journal of undergraduate research, publishing articles by students in all fields of scholarship. Released annually since 2005, Lucerna‘s purpose is to cultivate and showcase original research and scholarship from all undergraduate students at UMKC. Current UMKC undergraduates may submit research papers written during their academic careers.

 

We are currently accepting submissions for Volume 14. See our Submission Guidelines for more information.

If you have questions, contact the Editor-in-Chief, Katelyn Fisher, at katelynfisher@mail.umkc.edu.

 

Each submission to Lucerna is evaluated by a volunteer staff of student reviewers. Papers are judged on the basis of clarity, originality, organization, and argumentative qualities.

 

Every year, Lucerna celebrates its annual publication at the Lucerna Undergraduate Research Symposium. The Symposium allows authors of the newest volume to present their research to the UMKC and Kansas City community. This year, the Symposium will be on March 5, 2020.
