Founded in 2015 alongside the SFU Science Undergraduate Society (SUS), the SFU Science Undergraduate Research Journal (SURJ) is a student-led organization that aims to promote undergraduate science research by providing young scientists exposure and recognition for their work through multiple avenues:
- Our annually published journal encourages students to submit formal research and review articles. The journal offers undergraduates an opportunity to experience the peer-review process and publish their work while learning how to become better writers and science communicators.
- Our blog aims to provide a hub for more informal science content and news. We publish a series of interviews with different undergraduate researchers with the goal of showcasing the wide range of research opportunities that are available to SFU students.
- Our annual poster competition is hosted during the fall semester. Students present their work to faculty and graduate student judges for the opportunity to win cash prizes and awards. The poster competition is currently on hold due to Covid-19 restrictions.
