The journal’s purpose is to disseminate high quality creativity, innovation and research conducted and synthesized by undergraduate students at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa (UHM) in all academic fields represented by the UHM community. The journal represents a joint partnership among the UHM Honors Program, Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, and Honors Faculty. All work whose primary investigators, performers, or authors are undergraduate students may be considered for submission. The journal makes the research it publishes freely available to readers around the world to download, read, cite, copy, print, search, and link to the work published in the print and online versions of the journal.
Issues of the journal are published annually in the late summer or early fall, and include undergraduate scholarship conducted or completed during the previous academic year. Each annual issue is published simultaneously on the journal’s website and in print. The print issue includes selected outstanding works, as well as the titles and abstracts of additional selections published in full on the journal’s website. Previous years’ issues are stored in the journal’s digital archives.
