Making best use of the lab
The Writing Workshop's trained student assistants can help undergraduates with research papers or other writing assignments. They will help you craft a paper that readers will understand and remember. This is a free service for all Drake University students.
If you have written a good paper in an economics course, don't just keep it to yourself! Submit it to one of the following and add a line to your resume.
(1) Drake Management Review. This online journal publishes articles focusing on business issues by students and faculty, and appears once or twice yearly. Submissions are reviewed by faculty and sometimes outside experts. Submissions may be made at any time. For more information, contact the editor, Professor Lynn McCool.
(2) Drake Undergraduate Social Science Journal. This online journal showcases outstanding research by Drake students in the social sciences, and appears once yearly. Submissions are reviewed by a board of student editors. A call for papers is issued in November, with online publication in late March. For more information, contact the faculty managing editors, Professor Heath Henderson or Professor William Boal.
(3) Drake University Conference on Undergraduate Research in the Sciences (DUCURS). This annual conference includes poster sessions showcasing outstanding research by students in the sciences.
