Publish Your Gerontology Research

Have you written an "A" paper that won praise from a professor? Maybe the professor has even told you, "You should publish this!"

Publishing an article in a peer-reviewed, undergraduate research journal is a prestigious and achievable goal. It will shine on your resume or graduate shool application, and you will hone your research and writing skills as your write and revise a paper for publication.

The library's guide, Publish Your Undergraduate Research: Social Sciences & Gerontology can help you get your name in print!
