1890 – Spring 2020 Publication

Do you want a chance to be published? Do you have research, creative writing, poetry, reviews, or art you’d like to see in print? Submit your abstract to the Office of High Impact Practices to be featured in 1890: A Journal of Undergraduate Research.

1890 invites undergraduate students from all universities to submit their work—from any discipline—to be considered for publication in the journal’s 2020 edition. The journal is interdisciplinary, meaning that research, scholarly articles, creative writing, artwork, and photography will all be placed under consideration.

Having a published work will give a certain level of professionalism to your resume – a quality that many undergraduates do not have. Published papers may also be useful as a writing sample in graduate school applications and it will signal to graduate school committees that steps were taken to seriously pursue research interests.

The submission deadline for the 2020 issue is Friday, Jan 31, 2020. The journal is focused solely on the scholarship of undergraduate students and only accepts works from undergraduate students. Students who have graduated but have works completed as an undergraduate student that they will like to publish can also submit their abstract. To be eligible, students must submit their work within a year of receiving their first bachelor’s degree. On-going works by undergraduate students can also be published and updates on the research work will be published in future editions.

The purpose of 1890 is to provide undergraduate students the opportunity to demonstrate their interests and abilities in various disciplines by accepting works of research, creative writing, poetry, reviews, and art. New Plains Student Publishing uses 1890 to encourage, recognize, and reward intellectual and creative activity beyond the classroom by providing a forum that builds a cohesive academic community.

1890 is a peer reviewed journal. The selection of articles for 1890 is very competitive and articles are reviewed by faculty members across Oklahoma.
