Audeamus is open to any written or visual work created by an undergraduate honors student in the UC system.
To be considered an honors student you should be enrolled in an undergraduate honors program , or be a member of a recognized honors society.
There are practically no limits to what you can submit. Here are some possible ideas:
Photography, engineering schematics, art, architectural blueprints, pictures of sculpture, research papers, research synopses, literature analyses, poetry, short stories, journalism, creative nonfiction, well-done doodles, original recipes, cartography projects… You can submit original pieces, and pieces that you have submitted to class.
You may submit more than one thing, however, the board will only publish a limited amount of your work.
Written works should be no longer than 12 printed pages (8.5x11 inch paper, 1 inch margins, single-spaced 12pt Times New Roman/12.5 pt Garamond)
Written submissions must be either plain text, RTF, or Word (.doc, .docx) formats. Visual works must be “digitizable” through either high-resolution scanning, photography, or other means that produces a copy suitable for publishing. (Contact the editorial board if you need assistance with your work.) We reserve the right to reject a piece of work if the quality of the copy is not up to printing standards. We also may request a higher quality copy of your piece. This is not a guarantee of publication.
These must be submitted in a common format like JPEG, TIFF, etc. Submissions must display scholarly or artistic merit as determined by the Audeamus editorial board.
Potentially controversial topics are okay as long as the topic is handled in an appropriately academic or artistic manner.
Raciness, profanity, and other controversial elements are permitted as long as there is clear and distinguishable purpose in relation to the overall themes and goals of the piece.
Grammar and spelling errors will be taken as a sign that the piece has not been thoroughly prepared for publication and will typically result in rejection of the piece.
Citations and other style decisions should be consistent for whatever style manual appropriate for your discipline.
If you’re in doubt, we recommend the Chicago Manual of Style, available online or at most libraries. Incorrect or incomplete citations may result in immediate rejection. All of text should be original or properly cited, including a full bibliography if applicable. A bibliography that is incomplete or absent may result in immediate rejection.
