Augusta University is proud of the research and scholarly accomplishments of our undergraduates done in all spaces of our campuses: clinics, laboratories, libraries, print shops, theaters and laptops.

This page is dedicated to undergraduate publications and disseminations of research and scholarly work. Students, faculty, and alumni may submit presentation completed by solo authors/performers or collaborations between undergraduates and faculty mentors or research teams. All citations represent work accomplished while the student was at Augusta University.

What Types of Presentations are Accepted?

We accept records of research, scholarly, and fine arts products of Augusta University students while enrolled as an undergraduate. A citation record can be submitted for any COMPLETED or PUBLISHED product. It may not be used for abstracts, presentations, or manuscripts under review or which have not yet been accepted or completed. Manuscripts that have been accepted and have a full citation (e.g., including journal number and issue) may be submitted. Articles submitted in The Arsenal should also be recorded here once accepted for publication.

Who Should make the Submission?

Current students are strongly encouraged to submit their own presentations with guidance from the mentor as needed. Alumni may complete the form after graduation if the scholarly work was done while an undergraduate student. Faculty may complete the form on behalf of student alumni if they were co-authors or mentors on the project.

Any errors in citation are the responsibility of the author submitting the presentation. If you see a needed correction, please contact CURS.
