Call for papers: Anthós

The goal of Portland State’s only undergraduate research journal, Anthós, is to offer undergraduate students the opportunity to publish their original research, and to provide a venue for our university to demonstrate the level of excellence that is demonstrable in our undergraduate students.

Though Anthós began publishing the most exemplary work of our undergraduate students in the 1990’s, our journal went on hiatus for several years due to lack of funding. However, since 2009 we have once again been offering undergraduate students the opportunity to publish their work, this time in an online format as well as in print. We are dedicated to offering this service to our undergraduate students and also to our university as a whole.

The deadline for submissions in our upcoming Spring 2013 issue is Feb 25, 2013.  Submissions should be sent to We have attached the ANTHOS flyer and guidelines with the appropriate information including necessary details.
