Countdown to Submission Deadline - January 7th, 2020








Reuleaux is now accepting high-level undergraduate research for publication in spring 2019! 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.

Capsule Article-

At 3 pages maximum, these submissions should be a completely self-contained, concise summary of a larger work 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. Refer to the formatting guide for more specifics and detailed requirements.


Written Spotlight-

At just a single page in length, this submission category seeks to spotlight new and otherwise exciting projects on campus, as well as create a publication platform for more condensed communications that do not necessarily warrant a larger scale written report. Compared to the capsule article, a written spotlight has a more honed scope and focuses on giving a very concise presentation of a single topic, primarily including just an abstract highlighting research objectives and key results with few figures. Refer to the complete formatting guide for more specifics and detailed requirements.

Visual Spotlight-

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 are employed as the primary communicative tools. Again, basic information pertaining to objectives, methods, results, and study limitations should be included. Refer to the complete formatting guide for more specifics and detailed requirements.
