INCITE is the undergraduate research journal for Longwood University.

Dedicated to publishing the best work of undergraduate students across disciplines, INCITE is a faculty-reviewed journal produced at the end of each academic year.

Students who submit their original work to INCITE are eligible for a Best Student Publication monetary award in their discipline. Faculty mentors for student INCITE publications are also eligible for an INCITE Faculty Mentor Award. Recipients of these awards will be announced at the Excellence in Research and Inquiry Award Ceremony during the Spring Student Showcase.

Student work from all disciplines is welcome!
