What is an URNCST Journal Assistant?
URNCST Journal Assistants play a key role in advancing the journal’s mission of helping undergraduate and professional-undergraduate conference planning committees worldwide become aware of and learn more about the benefits of publishing their conference abstracts in the URNCST Journal and promoting the URNCST Journal Mentored Paper initiative. Journal Assistants may be undergraduate students, graduate students, research staff, and even non-researchers who have a keen interest in promoting undergraduate research. Prior research experience, therefore, is not a prerequisite required to become an URNCST Journal Assistant.
Why should I become an URNCST Journal Assistant?
Here are just some great reasons to become an URNCST Journal Assistant:
○ No Experience Required: Prior research experience is not a prerequisite to becoming an URNCST Journal Assistant. All we require is your willingness to support undergraduate research!
○ Work Remotely: As a journal assistant, you help us to promote the URNCST Journal to undergraduate researchers within your geographical location and/or online to the institution(s) where you are already affiliated.
○ Free Promotional Materials: The URNCST Journal provides assistant with all the guidance and promotional materials they need, and will never require them to create their own. As an assistant, if you cannot find what they are looking for, you are always welcome to request new materials. If approved, we may even pay you to help us create it!
What are some ways an Assistant can promote the URNCST Journal?
Before promoting the URNCST Journal, please remember to always ask for and obtain permission to do so when and where necessary. While this is by no means an exhaustive list, here are some examples of how we have coordinated promotion in the past:

○ Student Events: Promote the URNCST Journal while networking with your peers.
○ Lectures: Reach a large audience quickly by delivering a short announcement encouraging submissions to the URNCST Journal.
As an Assistant, you may hand out electronic or print copies of any or all resources provided that your method of promotion complies with all applicable laws, rules and regulations in rendering the services to be performed. As an Assistant you may not modify any resource in any way without prior consent from the URNCST Journal, however, all assistants are welcome to request new promotional materials by contacting email@example.com.
