The University of Texas Dallas recently released the latest edition of its undergraduate student research journal, The Exley, which is produced by a team of undergraduate students with faculty assistance to highlight the work of their peers.

“From illustrating the artistic talents of a biology major to highlighting the research contributions of a sophomore Goldwater Honorable Mention, The Exley continues to showcase the diverse skills and interests of our students,” Dean of Undergraduate Education Andrew Blanchard said. “The journal is an important publication because it reinforces our academic and creative undergraduate culture internally, which also leads to its utilization externally as a recruitment piece for prospective students.”

This year’s journal featured research on radiation treatments for cancer and signal enhancements in magnetic resonance imaging, as well as original student artwork. Behind the scenes, this edition also featured increased input from the student team that reviewed and edited the research submissions.

“Last year, when I served as a student adviser, I was very uncomfortable collaborating with the deans and the professors of the Advisory Board, but finding that my input was both accepted and valued, I felt more confident in myself and in my contributions to the discussion this year,” Elizabeth Kennon, a student on The Exley team, said. “Working with the submissions as a student editor required an increased knowledge of scientific writing styles and norms, and resulted in an increased awareness of and appreciate for effective written communication.”
