One benefit of presenting at NCUR is the opportunity for students to publish their work in the conference proceedings, produced annually by the University of North Carolina at Asheville and distributed to institutions across the nation. All student presenters at the conference (including students in the performing/visual arts) are invited to submit manuscripts for review by the proceedings board.
Submitting work to the proceedings has many advantages, two of which are deemed especially important:
1. The opportunity to receive comments from faculty outside your college or university, thereby enhancing the paper for submission to other sources in your field.
2. The opportunity to list your publication on your resume for graduate and professional school applications.
The Proceedings are published annually as a service of UNC Asheville, and the included papers are representative of the research presented at the conference.
Starting in 2012, permission to publish NCUR abstracts and articles on-line was obtained from all authors. As this permission from the authors was not obtained prior to 2012, these abstracts and articles, while on-line, are password protected and available to those who purchase a password. The cost of a CD for 2010 or 2011 or to access the online Proceedings after the conference is $50.00.
Years prior to 2010 are available on CD only and available for a one-time fee of $25.00 per CD.
