Duke Student Global Health Review (Accept Submissions on a Rolling Basis)

Duke Vertices is Duke University's premier undergraduate research journal and online science magazine. Established in the early 1980s, we're proud to continue a tradition of science journalism. Since the organization's revival in 2018, we've expanded to a hybrid model of science writing and undergraduate academic publishing.

Call for Submissions to Duke Vertices

Academic Research Journal: Did you just complete an independent study research paper or project? Submit your research here to be peer-reviewed by Duke peer reviewers, faculty, and Georgetown peer reviewers and eventually published in our semesterly issue.

Science Magazine: Have you written an article about a STEM topic or a recent advancement in research? Submit your science journalism here to be published in our online magazine. We publish science writing in three sections (news, features, and spotlight interviews) and feature a broad range of scientific disciplines, including neuroscience, environmental science, astronomy, and bioethics.
