The UMBC Review is a peer-reviewed publication, completely directed by UMBC undergraduate students. All of the articles published in the UMBC Review go through a rigorous peer review process. The Review is indebted to the anonymous off-campus faculty reviewers who volunteer their time to assure the high quality of our publication. We are proud to produce the publication in print format.

Submissions for the 25th edition will take place this summer. We invite researchers of all disciplines to submit their work to our journal then. The Review offers a rewarding opportunity to get your undergraduate research published in a peer-reviewed academic journal.

Free copies of the current issue are available for pick up at the Office of Undergraduate Research (AOK Library, 216 D).
