About This Journal

Pursuit - The Journal of Undergraduate Research at The University of Tennessee was founded in 2009. Pursuit is dedicated to publishing the scholarly work of undergraduates and is supported by The University of Tennessee, Knoxville Office of Research. The editors and review board are undergraduate students who consider and review submissions and work with select faculty and staff to publish Pursuit.

Pursuit accepts works from all academic disciplines. Authors must be current undergraduates at any university or must have graduated within the past year. Submissions from high school students will also be considered.

All submissions must be double-spaced and must be no longer than 30 pages (for Humanities and Social Sciences papers) or 15 pages (for Science and Engineering papers). Please use endnotes instead of footnotes. Please make sure to review the Policies of Pursuit prior to submission.

Since 2014, Pursuit publishes work annually, in a single volume, in both a print and electronic version.
