Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

Author Guidelines


Any undergraduate student at the University of Florida may submit a paper to UF JUR. To be eligible for publication, the research must be faculty mentored.

Types of Papers

UF JUR publishes original work only, including scholarly research papers as well as fine and performing arts projects that are accompanied by a project summary addressing, among other issues, influences, process/methodology, technique, and impact. Reviews are not accepted.


Papers should be between 1500 and 4000 words, including references. There is no limit on the number of figures and tables in a paper, though their placement and quality must conform to UF JUR guidelines.


For manuscript formatting (margins, fonts, headings, labeling and construction of figures and tables, etc.), use of the UF JUR template is required. (NOTE: ignore the template header for author name. This task will be completed during copy-editing.)

Graphics, including figures and tables, should appear within the manuscript rather than at the end. All graphics, including figures and tables must be in JPEG format; 300 DPI; maximum 1000 pixels wide x 2600 pixels high. Captions with credits must be included for each figure, and all tables labeled.

All citations must be complete in text and in the bibliography.

NOTE: The template is justified and the instructions state left aligned. Either is fine and will be fixed during the copy editing phase.

All copyrighted issues must be settled.



Papers should be received no later than:
