The Undergraduate Research in Natural and Clinical Science and Technology (URNCST) Journal was founded in July 2017 and has strived to be recognized as the leading publisher for undergraduate research conferences and case competitions around the world since its inception. The journal provides undergraduate researchers with the opportunity to showcase their research to an international audience in the formats of peer-reviewed research abstracts and manuscripts. This editorial was co-written by senior editors at the URNCST Journal to highlight the publication’s accomplishments leading up to its one-year anniversary while also sharing with our audience – both authors and readers – what they can look forward to in the upcoming year! We are extremely proud the degree of success that the URNCST Journal has experienced so far, and continue to champion for the importance of undergraduate research, considering that all major research discoveries were made by a researcher who was once an inspired undergraduate student. On behalf of the entire journal, we look forward to continue showcasing the research that undergraduate researchers have to offer internationally.
