The Drexel University Journal of Undergraduate Research in
Biology is a student written and produced journal designed to promote
interest in biological research among undergraduates. The goal of the
Journal is to allow students to participate fully in the whole process of
scientific research from the conception of a project to the publication
of the final results. It is fairly common for students to have the
opportunity to participate in a research project and to write a report
for their supervisor or professor. It is much less common for them to
have the opportunity to usher a paper through the publication process as
the primary author.
In addition to publishing student research projects,
DUJOUR/Biology will promote interest in research by publishing a variety
of other types of articles related to working in a research laboratory or
with currently important areas of research. A summary of the types of
articles that student authors may contribute is listed below.
DUJOUR/Biology is sponsored and funded by the Enhanced Bioscience
Education Program (EBE) in the Department of Bioscience and Biotechnology
at Drexel University. The EBE program is an NSF funded curriculum
development project which emphasizes active participation approaches to
science education. Please see the first article in this issue for an
overview of the EBE program.
If you are interested in contributing to DUJOUR/Biology as an
author, editor, or artist, please contact the Editor-In-Chief, David M.
