Auctus: Journal of Undergraduate Research and Creativity at VCU

Auctus Staff Call_Page_1The Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) at VCU is trying to re-start the student-run research journal, Auctus.  There had been one issue in 2009, and then the student who started it graduated, and the journal died out.  But it’s time to get it up and running again, and sustainable!  We have a faculty advisory board consisting of five people from the library (me), Honors College, and UROP.  We’ve decided on five sections for the journal:  Creative, Humanities, STEM, Social Sciences, and News and Noteworthy, and we are soliciting applications from students for editorial, reviewer, and copy editor positions.  I created an application via a Google Form, and an advertisement soliciting applications.  We are very excited to get this rolling!
