Below is a typical workflow for the review process:
Q. Can I have my paper from XXX class published?
Maybe. Review articles are accepted*, but you must have the paper sponsored by a mentor. This could be the instructor of the course or another faculty member who is an expert in the field. However, you may not submit a paper without a faculty sponsor.
* Review articles must be novel and substantially move the field forward. A basic overview of a topic will not be accepted. These types of papers will be reviewed by experts in the field to determine if they meet the higher standard for this type of submission.
Q. I completed my research, but then graduated from Chatham. Can I still submit my research to be published?
Absolutely! Follow the Submission Guidelines.
Q. Can I contact the reviewers directly to address a concern?
No. Reviewers submit their recommendations anonymously and only interact with the editor.
Q. What if I find a typo after the article is resubmitted?
The copy editor may see the mistake and correct it prior to the generation of the final PDF, but consider all resubmissions as a final document.
Q. I realized I used the wrong control in my experiment and now the results are not correct. What do I do?
You may submit for a retraction of the article. Please email the editor with details. Retracted articles will not be reviewed a second time.
Q. Should I include a “limitations” and “future directions” sub-header in the discussion?
No. They can be stand-alone paragraphs in the discussion.
Q. Do I get a final copy of the PDF?
Q. Is there a cost for publishing?
This is a free service.
Q. Can I submit color images in my article?
Q. Is there a page limit or word count limit for submissions?
No, However, abstracts should be no more than 250 words.
Q. Can supplementary materials or annexes to the main paper be submitted?
They will be posted online.
Q. Who should serve as the corresponding author?
Typically, this is a role for the mentor. However, students may also serve this role. A non-Chatham email is required if a student is a corresponding author.
Before completing, review the form to ensure you have all the necessary material. The Manuscript section requires a completed Chatham University Journal of Undergraduate Research Authorship Form.
