Our bi-annual newsletter, URNA (Undergraduate Research News Australasia), publishes articles by students about their research, and also carries news from ACUR and from conferences as well as about upcoming events. Articles from university staff are also welcome, written in a style suitable for a general audience.
If you’d like to contribute, please contact the editor, Dr Lilia Mantai, with an outline of what you’d like to say. Articles should be between 300 and 500 words in length, with an appealing title and a photograph (if active, all the better).
URNA is available in hard copy and digital form, and is distributed to all members and  Steering Committee members around the world, as well as to all universities in Australia and New Zealand.
