Submissions


Submission due dates:Please note that, as of 12/31/23, JUEMP is on hiatus (and is not accepting new submissions). Please check back periodically for updates.
 While submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, e-mailed submissions are due January 31st to be considered for publication in the year’s current volume. (Take, for example, the 2022-2023 academic year. Submissions received before January 31st, 2023, would be considered for the 2023 volume. Submissions received after January 31st, 2023, would be considered for the 2024 volume.) Due to our reliance on student effort, it is best to impose these due dates to best facilitate our undergraduate students’ participation in the editing and publication process. (i.e., August – April). Please note that we do observe university holidays and breaks.
Submission Guidelines: 
 Author eligibility – The first author must be an undergraduate student, alumnus, or alumna who graduated no more than 2 years before the manuscript is submitted to JUEMP. There are no limitations placed on the co-authors, such that co-authors may be non-students, undergraduate students, alumni, graduate students, faculty, or community members. Specific submission guidelines are provided below.
 Blind review – manuscripts submitted to JUEMP for review will be reviewed using a blind review process and SafeAssign. JUEMP utilizes SafeAssign to help ensure integrity.
 Types of research accepted – JUEMP accepts empirical or theoretical research that falls within the content scope of the journal. All work must be original, conducted under a faculty supervisor, and previously unpublished.
Format and Length 
 E-mailed submissions should include 3 separate files. All submissions must be formatted as Microsoft Word documents (.doc) and prepared using guidelines from the American Psychological Association’s Publication Manual.
