What is Momentum?
Momentum is Columbus State University's peer reviewed undergraduate research journal that is open to students of all disciplines. Successful papers are original works that appeal to a widely diverse audience. Work should be in clearly defined technical language that may be discipline-specific. Scholarship may include, but is not limited to, research studies, business plans, literary analyses, or artistic critiques.
While comparative analyses, criticisms, or interpretations of literature are acceptable submissions, any creative writing, literary non-fiction pieces, or artwork will be referred to the Columbus State University literary arts journal, Arden, for submission.
Internship, shadowing, and volunteer reflections are also welcome. These works are incorporated in a separate section dedicated to promoting student engagement in community service and career development opportunities.
Momentum advocates the presence of a diverse student population conducting independent studies. It serves as a platform to promote creativity, inquiry, and intellectual critique among undergraduates from all disciplines. Led by an Editorial Advisory Board, the journal conforms to the highest levels of academic honor by utilizing a blind review process that permits erudite submission from students across the disciplines. The journal's ultimate goal is to publish scholarly research among a wide range of captivating themes. Momentum accepts perspectives, creative inquires, and quantitative and qualitative research at the undergraduate level.
