We are delighted to welcome you to the online version of the Journal of Psychological Inquiry. We are proud to be one of the few journals to accept contributions exclusively from undergraduate students. The journal exists for a variety of reasons, and a primary one is to illustrate
the high quality of undergraduates' scholarly work. Scholarly work encompasses a
broad range of investigation and includes more traditional data-based activity,
as well as literature reviews and historical research. Transmitting the results
of one's scholarship through a printed medium requires development of formal,
written communication skills. Promoting the refinement of such skills is another
goal for the journal. According to employers, and professional and graduate
school faculty, increasing undergraduates' written communication skills would
make those students more attractive for employment and for admission to post
graduate training or education. Increasing students' success in life following
graduation is another aspiration associated with the journal. Because modeling
can facilitate learning, showing students what their peers have accomplished
should help to encourage ever widening circles of students to become engaged in
and excited about research.
If you have any questions about the JPI, contact the FHSU Department of Psychology office at (785) 628-4405 or email Dr. Jennifer Bonds-Raacke (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. John Raacke (email@example.com).
The Journal of Psychological Inquiry encourages undergraduate students to submit manuscripts for consideration. Manuscripts may include empirical studies, literature reviews, and historical articles; manuscripts may cover any topical area in the psychological sciences. Write the manuscript for a reading audience versus a listening or viewing audience.
