What is Explorations?

Explorations is a multi-disciplinary online journal of undergraduate research published by the Office of Undergraduate Education. Manuscript submissions are open to current UC Davis undergraduates in all disciplines.

Why publish?

Publishing is impressive for graduate school applications and is an essential skill for academia. It shows employers and graduate schools your ability to write and to carry a project through to a conclusion.

How do I make a submission?

Currently, Explorations is going through an exciting transition to a multi-media platform.  Please check back with us Winter Quarter for updated information on submission process and deadlines.
