Welcome to the Texas State Undergraduate Research Journal!

The Texas State Undergraduate Research Journal, otherwise known as TXSTUR, provides an outlet for undergraduates in all disciplines to publish original work. We encourage students to submit excellent papers written for classes, research supported by the Undergraduate Research Fellowships, adapted portions of their theses or capstone projects, or any other research-based writing of publishable merit. 

TXSTUR is a student-run journal housed in the Honors College and the IDEA Center.  Although TXSTUR's review process relies on the assistance of faculty experts, all editorial and managerial decisions are made by a team of undergraduate and graduate student editors.

In Spring 2024, TXSTUR will appear in two editions. The first, online only, is open to submissions in all fields of research. The second edition will focus on scholarship in humanistic inquiry (including but not limited to disciplines in the humanities and social sciences) and appear in both online and print versions. 

All submissions to TXSTUR will be considered for the online-only edition.  Authors may indicate on the submission form if they would like to be considered for the humanities-focused edition as well. 

The deadline for submissions to be considered for the Spring 2024 editions is Friday, February 16th.  Submissions received after February 16th may be considered for next year’s issue.
