Publish student research

Publication early in the bachelor's degree promotes self-confidence and self-image as a student researcher and part of a (super)professional community, as the texts are accessible to a broader audience. In addition, students gain their first experience in the scientific review and publication process (Walkington et al. 2013).

 UR: The Journal. Student Research at the University of Vienna

UR: The Journal is published by the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) in collaboration with degree program directors and student organizations at the University of Vienna. The journal gives students a multidisciplinary space to make student research visible early in their studies.

The content of the journal comes from students who want to publish their projects - either as part of an open call or in a rubric designed by their field of study. A rubric is a part of the journal with its own editorial team. The editorial team of a rubric consists of people from the department who oversee the publication of student work at the department and in collaboration with CTL.

The Center for Teaching and Learning provides the framework for the publication of student work through the journal. In addition, the CTL assists interested parties in the publication process through workshops, templates, and consultation.

A list of current and past editors* and current calls can be found on the Journal website!

UR: The journal will be published twice a year starting in the winter semester of 2022. All articles are available in open access under CC-BY-ND-4.0 license.



 You would like to create a rubric?

Would you like to make particularly good work or the work of students in general visible to a wider audience? Create a rubric in UR: The Journal!

A rubric is a separate part of the journal, which is supervised by its own editorial team. It can be created by members of an institute and student organizations whose members (voluntarily) form an editorial team. Our goal is to involve students of the institute as much as possible.

Please contact us for a non-binding preliminary discussion about the general conditions and possibilities!
