Undergraduate Research Commons

The Undergraduate Research Commons (URC), a Bepress research portal curated by university librarians, is a portal showcasing published works authored by thousands of undergraduate students at institutions worldwide. The portal was built to provide greater visibility to exemplary student works that universities and colleges are publishing. You'll find only publications by universities and colleges here. The URC provides you with an Open Access Research Tool to access freely available peer-reviewed journal articles, capstone and honors theses, fieldwork and classroom projects, conference proceedings, and other undergraduate studies.
