Monarch Review

Monarch Review is Methodist University’s journal of undergraduate research and creativity. This student-run journal features work from all academic and artistic disciplines, ranging from life sciences to literary analysis and from photography to musical performances (but excluding creative writing). Undergraduates are invited to submit outstanding work to be considered for publication. Following the model of academic publications and art juries, each work is anonymously reviewed by two or more faculty members, and feedback is provided to the student scholars and artists. The journal is published in print and online; however, publication is currently suspended.
