The Florida Atlantic University Undergraduate Research Journal (FAURJ) is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal that is published annually. The FAURJ is published online and in print by OURI's student club, the Council for Scholarship and Inquiry (C.S.I.). Its missions are to showcase high quality undergraduate research in all fields, supply students with an idea of the standard of research, and promote inquiry-based activities at FAU.

How to Get Started in Research and Inquiry : This workshop, offered each Month, will discuss the beginning steps on how to get started in undergraduate research and inquiry, including what is research, how to get involved in research and inquiry, how to contact faculty members, and much more!
Research Ethics:Here students will learn about the projects that need to have research compliance through the Division of Research and the roads to take in order to conduct ethical research.
Statistical Significance and Effect Size; Beyond p-value: Statistical arguments need to contain more than a single number and whether that number exceeds an arbitrary threshold. The purpose of this presentation is to highlight misconceptions of the p-value, and how effect size provides additional and pertinent information relating to a research question. The outcome of the presentation for research assistants would be an increased ability in interpreting research results. Graduate students and faculty may also benefit through a better understanding of the factors that should be considered in a research initiative.
Creating a Poster and Oral Presentation: Students will be assisted in the process of creating a poster and oral research presentation, just in time for the annual OURI Undergraduate Research Symposium!
