About this Journal

The Editorial Board members

The Rowdy Scholar: A Journal of Undergraduate Research & Creative Works is an online, open-access multi-disciplinary scholarly research journal publishing original research and creative works, including but not limited to works prepared for classes, honors theses, or independent study by undergraduate students at MSU Denver. Any submission must be reviewed and approved by the faculty mentor. The faculty mentor ensures that the quality and impact of the work is acceptable for submission. Following submission, the editorial board for The Rowdy Scholar will review the work to ensure that the work is original and meets our rigorous publication standards. The Rowdy Scholar editorial board strives to have representation of work from diverse disciplines from across the university.

Submissions are welcome from all fields of study and are accepted on a rolling basis.  However, the deadline for submission for a given year’s issue is generally in January or February.

 

History of The Rowdy Scholar

The Rowdy Scholar culminated from the efforts of a highly dedicated team of faculty and staff who are committed to promoting student success.  The ultimate goal of The Rowdy Scholar team was to develop a journal in which the incredible scholarly works and creative projects of undergraduate students at MSU Denver can be showcased not only at MSU Denver, but also to the public.
