Research authored by Villanova undergraduate students and recent alumni was recently published in Volume II of Veritas: Villanova Research Journal (VVRJ). This open-source journal, sponsored by the University’s Center for Research and Fellowships and Falvey Memorial Library, promotes scholarly investigation and discovery; introduces student researchers to the peer review process as contributors and student editors; and highlights the work of Villanova students and their faculty mentors across all fields of study.
The journal’s second volume, which is available online and in print, contains 16 submissions in disciplines including Biology, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computing Sciences, Geography and the Environment, Mathematics and Statistics, Philosophy and Psychological and Brain Sciences.
This year's VVRJ cover is a student-sourced collage of what research looked like to the Summer 2020 VURF cohort: their "view from here" as they confronted unexpected challenges and conducted research from living rooms, bedrooms, backyards and rooftops.
Due to COVID-19 the annual Symposium has been postponed until spring 2021.
