The Canadian Journal of Undergraduate Research (CJUR) is a bi-annual student-led research publication. Being able to publish your work is one of the most important skills for a successful academic researcher. However, at the undergraduate level these opportunities are scarce and difficult to access. This problem is compounded by the fact that many competitive scholarships and graduate programs require a strong publication record as an undergraduate.
CJUR was founded in 2015 by a group of undergraduate students at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada with the hopes of providing an accessible platform for undergraduates to gain experience in academic publishing.
