Pittsburgh Undergraduate Review

This journal, established in 1980 by honors students, offers undergraduates an opportunity to publish analytical and scholarly essays.

The Pittsburgh Undergraduate Review (PUR) staff gain valuable experience in editing an academic journal that publishes outstanding papers from undergraduate students throughout the nation and is subscribed to by colleges throughout the United States.

A unique feature of the PUR is the process of professional refereeing of manuscripts by established faculty members. The faculty critiques are returned to the student author with the intention of helping the author produce a publishable piece of scholarly work.
