Conferences and Journals
Conferences are a great opportunity to share your work with peers, faculty members, and others in your field. Select undergraduate conferences are included below. Also be sure to research conferences in your field; they may be open to undergraduate participants!

UCLA Undergraduate Research Week
Open to all UCLA undergraduates engaged in research and creative projects, Undergraduate Research Week provides opportunities for hundreds of UCLA students to present their work to the campus and broader community as oral presentations, posters, and performances. The submission deadline is April 15 for the mid-May conference.

UCLA Psychology Undergraduate Research Conference
The Psychology Undergraduate Research Conference provides opportunities for students from UCLA and other colleges to present their research as posters or paper talks. The conference is typically held in May. See the website for application deadlines.

Council on Undergraduate Research Posters on the Hill
The Council on Undergraduate Research hosts a poster session on Capitol Hill where students have the opportunity to speak directly to members of Congress. The abstract submission period is typically in the fall quarter for the spring conference. Please note: It is unlikely that more than one student project will be selected per school, but up to four students may be associated with a project.

National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR)
The National Conferences on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) promote undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study. The annual conference gives undergraduate scholars in all fields and from all institutions a forum to share the results of their work. The deadline is typically in the fall quarter for the spring conference.

Southern California Conferences on Undergraduate Research (SCCUR)
The Southern California Conferences on Undergraduate Research (SCCUR) host a one-day conference on the campus of a college or university in the greater Los Angeles area. SCCUR is broadly multidisciplinary. The deadline for submission is typically in October for the November conference.


Publishing in an undergraduate journal is another great way to share your research and engage in current conversations in your field. Be sure to show your manuscript to your faculty mentor before sending it out for publication.
