New Issue of the McNair Scholars Research Journal Now Available

The Spring 2015 issue of the McNair Scholars Research Journal is now available via ScholarWorks. The journal features research in physics, art, mass communication and journalism, biology, English, environmental studies, multi-ethnic studies, and history. This year’s authors focused on diverse topics such as sexual violence in India, the Melville-Hawthorne friendship, and the Arrowrock Dam. With over 140,000 full text downloads to date, the McNair Journal is one of the most highly used publications in the entire ScholarWorks collection.

The Boise State McNair Scholars Program serves students from groups underrepresented in graduate education and first generation college students from low-income backgrounds, grooming them for graduate studies through scholarly enrichment, exposure to research, and other academic experiences and opportunities. The program collaborates with Faculty Mentors to prepare McNair Scholars to successfully pursue a PhD and careers in university teaching and research.

Each Spring, the McNair Scholars Program publishes the Boise State McNair Scholars Research Journal, featuring articles reporting on research conducted during the McNair Summer Research Institute. The journal provides a unique opportunity for McNair Scholars to experience the publication process and develop important writing and revision skills.
