Founded in 2011, the UBC Undergraduate Journal of Psychology is an annual, student-run, and peer-reviewed journal. Our goal is to provide a platform for undergraduate students to showcase their research, allowing them an invaluable opportunity to have a published academic paper early in their careers. The journal provides a fantastic opportunity for undergraduates to experience the publication and peer-review process while also being a valuable resource for faculty and students to learn about the research happening next door. We accept quality articles investigating multiple domains of psychology research, including: clinical, health, cognitive, developmental, social/personality/culture, quantitative, and behavioural neuroscience.

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
