Got Undergrads Doing Great Research?

Here’s a publishing opportunity for MU students.  This Stanford journal is no longer just for Stanford students:

“The Stanford Undergraduate Research Journal (SURJ) is now accepting manuscript submissions for the Spring 2010 issue. SURJ is an interdisciplinary journal published annually that seeks to provoke curiosity and intellectual exploration across both the Stanford community and at leading institutions nationwide. Papers should be 1500-2500 words in length and written for a very well-educated general audience. Highly technical manuscripts may be submitted for consideration but may need to be thoroughly edited if selected for publication. The deadline for submission is February 9, 2010.

You can find submission guidelines at the journal’s Web site.
