ARE YOU READY TO PUBLISH IN REULEAUX?
Countdown to Submission Deadline - January 11th, 2021
Reuleaux is now accepting high-level undergraduate research for publication in Spring 2021! Having research published under your name will elevate your profile to future employers and fulfill a requirement for admission into many masters and PhD programs. You can publish a spotlight article in Reuleaux even if you are planning to publish your research elsewhere! See below for instructions for submitting a publication. Be sure to start planning your submission early!
Printed Publication Formats
Reuleaux accepts undergraduate research for publication in a variety of formats, including full-length papers, abbreviated works, abstracts, and other spotlight pieces. Full-length papers and other extended documents will be published in their entirety online and cited in the printed issue of Reuleaux—the printed issue will showcase the more abbreviated spotlight pieces. All publications will be submitted to the Mines Institutional Repository and listed under the same DOI, making them easily discoverable and citable. If you intend to publish a full-length paper with Reuleaux you must also submit an abbreviated spotlight of some form to be published in print. This will grab the reader’s attention and encourage them to further explore your research online! You do not need to publish a full-length paper in order to publish a spotlight article.
As a two-page visual counterpart to the Written Spotlight, this submission category carries the same scope. However, the Visual Spotlight places an emphasis on graphic design over formal writing, displaying information in a “poster presentation” design style. The submission should be stand-alone with table captions and references to guide the viewer, but figures and images should be the primary communicative tools. Again, basic information pertaining to objectives, methods, results, and study limitations should be included. Think of it like a poster presentation that can stand on its own in a printed format.
At just 1-2 pages in length, this submission category seeks to spotlight new and exciting projects on campus that do not necessarily warrant a Full-Length Article. The Written Spotlight has a narrower scope that focuses on concise presentation of a single topic. These spotlights may feature a concise abstract highlighting research objectives and key results, or an overview of emerging research projects.
Full-Length Articles are our longest feature in the printed journal. They are concise and readable overviews of your research accessible to a technically educated audience. They are to be completely self-contained, with emphasis on an engaging narrative rather than an exhaustive relay of data. In general, submissions under this category should contain an abstract, information pertaining to the researcher’s methods, and a discussion of any important results, including study limitations. It is recommended that 3-4 figures and references be included to outline larger trends and milestones rather than extreme specifics.
Reuleaux Writing Grant Article-
Much like the Full-Length Articles, the Reuleaux Writing Grant Article is a standalone piece meant to fully illustrate a research narrative. Unlike the Full-Length Article, however, these articles are required to be 4-5 pages in length and must reflect at least two semesters of dedicated engagement to a research project. As such, these articles are expected to have a fully developed abstract, a repeatable methodology, and professional quality results. The expectation is that these articles reflect the highest quality effort in both research and writing. Reuleaux Writing Grant Articles must successfully complete the peer review process.
