JUST Overview

The Journal of Undergraduate Science and Technology (JUST) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is a bi-annual research journal written and administered by undergraduates with the help of faculty, staff, and graduate advisers.

The Journal of Undergraduate Science and Technology (JUST) is an interdisciplinary journal for the publication and dissemination of undergraduate research conducted at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Encompassing all areas of research in science and technology, JUST aims to provide an open-access platform for undergraduates to share their research with the university and the Madison community at large.

In May 2016, JUST debuted its inaugural issue featuring a diverse collection of peer-reviewed research reports, reviews, and editorials. Since release, over 750 printed copies have been distributed campus-wide and the digital publication has been made accessible to the public online. JUST will publish biannually during the 2016-2017 academic year, with the next issue scheduled for release December 2016.
