Welcome to Curiosity: The Undergraduate Research Journal of Utah State University

Curiosity is an online, mentor-reviewed, open access working-paper series run by students and faculty at Utah State University. The Journal is supported by the Office of Research and is dedicated to the publication of research conducted by USU undergraduates in any discipline. Any research articles, short stories, poetry, photography, films, and/or other creative works authored by USU’s undergraduates are accepted. All undergraduate students at Utah State University are encouraged to submit their research or creative work for publication. If you are unsure whether or not your project is viable for submission, please contact us. Journal submissions are accepted year-round for online publication each spring. All submissions must be reviewed and accepted by the student’s faculty mentor before they are accepted for submission. Every approved submission will be published.
