Scholarship is a conversation—and you can be part of it.
The Hatchery is a multi-disciplinary, open access undergraduate research journal produced and edited by Indiana University of Pennsylvania. The journal is open to IUP undergraduate students and reviewed and edited by IUP faculty.
The Hatchery will feature a range of articles representing outstanding research across disciplines, from all of the academic departments of IUP. Digitally published every spring, circulated across campus, and housed in our institutional repository,
the Hatchery will showcase the scholarly talent of IUP’s undergraduates both on-campus and to the wider world.
The process of academic research and publishing is often a mystery to our undergraduate students. While undergraduates regularly write and produce papers and research for their classes, that next step remains seemingly out of reach for them at this point
in their studies. Launching the Hatchery helps take the mystery out of publishing and brings it into their world. It benefits them by:
All undergraduate students may submit their original work to the Hatchery submission board. We also encourage recent graduates (within one year) to submit work they performed during their senior year at IUP.
We anticipate opening for submissions during the fall 2020 semester. Logistics, infrastructure, and promotional activities are underway now so it can take flight in the fall. For details, see the table below:
