ALEPH Accepting Submissions

Interested in getting your research/work published? The prestigious UCLA Undergraduate Research Journal in the Social Sciences and Humanities (ALEPH) is currently accepting submissions for its the Fall and Winter quarterly publications.

Who Can Submit: Only those who have written their manuscript(s) while enrolled as undergraduates at UCLA are eligible to submit to Aleph. Authors may submit their undergraduate work up to one year after graduation.

Submission Deadline: The deadline for this year’s submissions is Friday, Jan. 5, 2018. Works that are received after the deadline will automatically be considered for publication in the following academic year.

Submission Format: Manuscripts should be no longer than 20 pages (excluding notes, graphs, pictures, and works cited) and include an abstract (a summary of the paper’s essential material) of 125 to 175 words, supplemented by five keywords (search words other researchers can use to find the submission’s main topics). All submissions should use their discipline’s standard citation conventions (e.g. APA, MLA, Chicago) and convert any footnotes to endnotes. Manuscripts must be in Microsoft Word files, be double-spaced, use 12-point Times New Roman font, include a works cited page, and provide a page number in the upper right corner of each page. Lastly, all the components of each submission (e.g. title page, works cited, etc.) should be included in a single Microsoft Word document.

How To Submit: Please submit your work via e-mail as a Microsoft Word attachment sent to alephjournal@ucla.edu (using Excel for tables, etc.). Submission e-mails should read “ALEPH SUBMISSION” in their subject lines, and should contain the author’s name, telephone number, submission title, and the discipline that the submission falls under. If you wish to submit multiple works, please send each submission in a separate e-mail.
