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 published its second issue in May 2017. Looking forward, JUST will publish biannually during the 2017-2018 academic year.

Mission Statement

JUST is dedicated to showcasing and disseminating undergraduate excellence in science and technology research. In strong support of the Wisconsin Idea, our mission is threefold:

  1. Make research and scientific achievement accessible to non-expert communities beyond academia.

  2. Foster continued support for exceptional undergraduate research.

  3. Garner appreciation and raise awareness of the contributions of outstanding undergraduate researchers.

To play a part in implementing our mission, get involved.
