Places to Publish

Set goals to publish your work in an undergraduate research journal--explore publications at UMKC and across the nation. Consult with your faculty mentor before submitting your work to any publication.


Lucerna, a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal, is the only undergraduate journal at UMKC, publishing articles by students in the social sciences, sciences and humanities. Established in 2005 by the UMKC Honors Program, Lucerna's purpose is to cultivate and showcase high-caliber scholarship from the entire UMKC undergraduate community. Any UMKC student may submit a research paper between 1,000 and 6,000 words, written anytime during their undergraduate academic career.
