Quest Undergraduate Research Journal publishes research articles by Queens University of Charlotte undergraduates on a variety of interdisciplinary topics. These publications have a particular emphasis on quantitative, qualitative, and rhetorical inquiry employing a variety of methods and methodologies in a quest to invite undergraduates to learn through knowledge making processes.  

Quest was originally conceived by our STEM faculty in 2017, but expanded in 2022 to research being conducted and produced by undergraduate psychology majors. In 2023, the Office of Academic Affairs and the College of Arts and Sciences supported the creation of an academic course inviting students into the process of professional writing and editing for publication of the Queens undergraduate research journal. Drawing on the interdisciplinary nature of writing, research, and scholarship, this course offered students a variety of disciplinary lenses by which to consider knowledge-making and knowledge-dissemination. Students from across our curriculum work together to create an interdisciplinary space for exploration and inquiry. 

Submissions follow a double-blind review process by Queens peers, Queens faculty, and outside scholars. We are committed to creating an accessible publication that encourages undergraduates to see themselves not only as consumers of knowledge but also as creators of knowledge.
