About the Journal

Focus and Scope

UFJUR is published each year in the fall. UF JUR gives scholars a voice for their research in the arts and humanities, social, behavioral, education, STEM and medicine. Students submit their work with faculty/mentor approval.

Peer Review Process

Each paper goes through a double blind peer-review (UF) process with experts in the discipline of the article topic.  If the article is selected, the author will be asked to submit a revised version of the work before being accepted for publication. For this reason, it is important that authors provide up-to-date contact information.
