The research of undergraduate students from the University of Central Florida has been published in the spring issue of the Council on Undergraduate Research Quarterly.

Two peer-reviewed articles about students’ research needs written by UCF students were published in the journal, which targets faculty and administrators interested in undergraduate research. The quarterly’s editor said the articles were selected for publication because of their interdisciplinary nature.

“Five Effective Strategies for Mentoring Undergraduates: Students’ Perspectives” by biomedical sciences major Mario Pita; chemistry major Christopher Ramirez; biology major Nathanaelle Joacin; psychology major Sarah Prentice; and early childhood development major Christy Clarke provides the students’ insights on how faculty mentors can engage undergraduate researchers and help them to generate their best work.

“Five Essential Skills for Every Undergraduate Researcher” by biomedical sciences major Adrienne Showman; interdisciplinary studies major Linh Anh Cat; psychology major Jacquelyn Cook; art history and anthropology double-major Natalie Holloway; and biology major Tyler Wittman focuses on the qualities necessary for successful undergraduate researchers.
