The Western Undergraduate Research Journal: Health and Natural Sciences (WURJHNS) started in 2009. It is a student-run open access, peer- and Faculty-reviewed online journal that publishes a variety of articles, including research articles, mini-review articles, Students in the Field reports, briefing notes, short communications, and Letters to the Editor.

Call for Papers
WURJHNS is now accepting submissions in the fields of Biology, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Environmental Sciences, Physics and Astronomy, Health Sciences, Medical Sciences, and related subject areas. Submission of quality papers for review is strongly encouraged. Interested authors should read the submission guidelines first. All articles judged suitable for consideration will be reviewed in a double blinded process by the WURJHNS editorial review board. The journal accepts articles on a rolling submissions basis and thus will accept submissions at any time throughout the year. For more information, contact wurjhns@uwo.ca.
