Aims & Scope

The McGill Science Undergraduate Research Journal (MSURJ) is a peer-reviewed journal that promotes and supports undergraduate research, aiming to make science accessible to all. The journal offers undergraduate students from any university the opportunity to publish their findings to the research community.

Currently, publication of the journal occurs annually in April with continuous publication of individual articles in advance of issue publication. The journal publishes any science, meaning the systematic, evidence-based pursuit of understanding or application of such understanding. The journal includes both original research and review articles. Original research should be carried out during a student’s (a co-author’s) undergraduate career at an accredited higher-education institution. 

Articles are selected based on multiple criteria, including originality, effective communication of science, and reliable data and interpretation thereof, as determined by peer-reviewers and the Editorial Board.
