What are Acceptable Stages of Research for the Tri-Annual Undergraduate Research Symposia?

We define undergraduate research in the broadest and most inclusive way. The following are considered acceptable forms and stages of research that can be presented at OUR's symposia:

  • Literature-based research (e.g. review of climate change research)
  • Reviews of publicly available facts rather than subjective opinions
  • Evaluation of previously published data from open access databases or previously published research
  • Preliminary analysis, results, or findings from ongoing research
  • Proposed methodologies, plans, questions, and goals
