About Reuleaux

Our Mission Statement

Reuleaux is the Mines Undergraduate Research journal, focused on celebrating the efforts, accomplishments, and creativity of student researchers on campus.

This journal will give undergraduate researchers a platform by which they may publish engaging narrative descriptions of their research — in the physical sciences or otherwise — that are approachable to a large audience and that elicit excitement! As such, the language and graphic design of articles published in Reuleaux should be clear, concise, and non-exclusive to readers hoping to learn more about the cutting edge of research at Mines. This mantra to publishing presents the opportunity for Mines students to further develop their scientific communication skills for a larger audience than just the scientific research community.

Reuleaux will provide the opportunity for undergraduate researchers to pursue a peer-reviewed status, however, should they be interested. Reuleaux will focus on developing an on-campus network of faculty and staff that may offer peer-review services, should they be desired.

The content of Reuleaux is intended to span the scope of all physical and social sciences. As such, this journal is not limited to showcasing research often associated with the ubiquitous concentration of Mines: engineering. Furthermore, this journal hopes to give a narrative to the journey of undergraduate research by featuring insight from laboratories, faculty, alumni, and fellowships that have shaped the culture of Mines undergraduate research.

Primary stakeholders in the development of each edition of Reuleaux are the student body of Mines, the Mines Foundation, Mines alumni and Mines faculty. The primary purpose of involving these stakeholders is to ensure that Reuleaux is a journal that can be picked up and thoroughly enjoyed by most individuals at most any time.  

The ultimate goal, then, of Reuleaux is to make scientific research exciting and readable, for what is the point of novel scientific research if no one reads it? With this in mind, Reuleaux hopes to showcase undergraduate research so that it may garner for itself greater support — whether that be financially, spatially, temporally, or otherwise — in achieving its ultimate goals.
