The Florida Atlantic University Undergraduate Research Journal (FAURJ) is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal that is published annually. The FAURJ is published online and in print by OURI's student club, the Council for Scholarship and Inquiry (C.S.I.). Its missions are to showcase high quality undergraduate research in all fields, supply students with an idea of the standard of research, and promote inquiry-based activities at FAU.
Council for Scholarship and Inquiry (C.S.I.)
The Council for Scholarship and Inquiry (C.S.I.) at Florida Atlantic University is a student organization established by the Student Council for the University’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). C.S.I. is open to all FAU students in any department. Opportunities sponsored by C.S.I. will consist of establishing and maintaining an annual FAU Undergraduate Research Journal (FAURJ), peer mentoring and peer advising programs, and journal and scholarship/grant writing workshops. These students host workshops and other events to integrate and expand a culture of research, inquiry and creative activity on all of FAU’s campuses. CSI works closely with the Peer Mentors to support this initiative.
Our goals are to:
- promote the existing culture of undergraduate research at FAU across as many disciplines as possible
- enhance scholarship, creativity, critical thinking and academic excellence of undergraduate students at FAU
- encourage and foster school pride and unity at FAU
