The articles explore a range of interesting undergraduate research from universities across the UK and beyond, including an examination into the use of social media by parliamentary candidates in the 2015 general election and an analysis of the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
UJPIR offers a platform for undergraduates to publish original research that has underpinned their studies. Edited by Simon Lightfoot, Pro-Dean for Student Education at the University of Leeds, the journal aims to demonstrate that undergraduate researchers can make novel and academically significant contributions to the field, and support their journeys as developing researchers.
Submissions of work achieving a first class mark, or equivalent, which address any aspect of politics and international relations are welcomed all year round. As academic quality is central to the UJPIR ethos, all articles are fully peer reviewed by independent experts and the Board of Editors select material based on the quality of research and writing, diversity and relevance of the topic.
WRUP is an open-access digital publisher of peer-reviewed academic journals and publishes across a wide range of academic disciplines.
More information can be found on the journal website, and you can read and download the newly-published articles for free.
