BigSURS 2013


Proceedings of the Big South Undergraduate Research Symposium (BigSURS) 2013

Submitting Manuscripts

One benefit of presenting at BigSURS is the opportunity for students to publish their work in the Conference Proceedings, edited and produced by The University of North Carolina at Asheville. All student presenters at the conference (including students in the performing/visual arts) are invited to submit manuscripts for review by the Proceedings Board. THe first 50 students to submit manuscripts will receive a copy of the 2012 Proceedings.


Submitting work to the Proceedings has many advantages, two of which are deemed especially important:

  • The opportunity to receive comments from faculty outside your college or university, thereby enhancing the paper for submission to other sources in your field.
  • The opportunity to list your publication on your resume for graduate and professional school applications.
