UMBC Review

Extended Deadline for submissions:

September 24, 2021

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.

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