The Undergraduate Research Office will soon begin accepting abstracts for the 2015 Undergraduate Scholars' Book of Abstracts and the inaugural Showcase of Undergraduate Research and Creative Endeavors (SOURCE). The same abstract submission form (to be linked below) will be used for both purposes.
Any undergraduate who has engaged in research (i.e., scholarly or creative activity) between Summer 2014 and Spring 2015, or who has presented his/her work at a professional meeting and/or to the campus community during that time is encouraged to submit. We will also be accepting abstracts from students who have conducted exemplary work in classes that have discipline-specific scholarship activities (methods courses, research courses, "traditional" courses with research emphases, etc.). All abstracts must be sponsored by a Winthrop faculty mentor or Department Chair.
The abstract body (not counting title, authors, etc.) is limited to a maximum of 250 words and should concisely describe the scholarly or creative project. (See your faculty mentor for help writing the abstract.) Please use 12-point Times New Roman font.
The abstract submission form will prompt you to enter the following information:
- Abstract title
- Names, home towns, and expected graduation dates for all contributing undergraduate student authors
- Names and academic departments for all faculty mentors
- Abstract body (project description), limited to 250 words
- Additional information specific to your particular abstract (not all will apply to you), including Honors Thesis committee members, details of course information, conference presentations, publications, scholarships/grants, and/or awards related to the project
- Information related to presenting or performing your work on campus at SOURCE on Friday, April 24, 2015
Abstract Submission Form (Coming soon!)
The collections of abstracts in our archives represent countless hours of scholarly and creative activity in which students honed their research, creativity, critical thinking, and writing skills and engaged in learning well beyond the classroom.
