“Uncovering the Mystery of Machu Picchu, “Social Relevance and Innovation in Public Radio,” and “Tango: A Spanish-Based Programming Language” are just some of the papers contained in the 2017 Butler Journal of Undergraduate Research, which is now available online.

The third annual journal features a wide range of scholarly papers—five by Butler students and the others from Stanford, DePauw, Pittsburgh, California State Polytechnic, and University of Warwick.

Submission of original scholarly research articles is open to undergraduates from any accredited college and university. Published papers were selected by Butler faculty.

The first two editions of the journal had more than 6,100 downloads from across the globe.

“The Butler Journal of Undergraduate Research has successfully enhanced Butler’s commitment to undergraduate research by building upon and expanding existing opportunities for student scholarship with the additional opportunity to disseminate their work to a growing national and international audience,” said Professor of Sociology Kenneth Colburn, the Editor of the journal.
