Journal of Undergraduate Materials Research

Welcome to JUMR

JUMR is a scientific journal dedicated to research performed by undergraduate students in materials related fields. JUMR is a student-run endeavor. The editorial board is made up of graduate and undergraduate students from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering.

The primary goal of the journal is to provide a venue for undergraduates to publish research performed in materials related fields. The secondary goals are to provide opportunities for undergraduates to practice their communication skills and learn about reviewed publications, as well as providing opportunities for editorial board members to participate in the administration of creating the reviewed publication.

Paper Review

The review committee contains faculty, industry, and graduate student members. Each article will be evaluated by 2 - 3 reviewers, at least one of whom will be a graduate student. Based on the reviewers' comments, the editorial board will choose which papers to accept for publication and provide appropriate feedback to the authors.
