The NovoVerse undergraduate research eJournal is a new business and information management undergraduate research resource. Our aim is to motivate undergraduate students, in a supporting but assiduous environment, to engage in the craft of innovative and empirically rigorous academic research writing which is subsequently published and disseminated to a wider public audience. The NovoVerse eJournal project is nuanced in terms of involving a trifecta of specific stakeholders in the publication process: undergraduates (Authors), postgraduates (Mentors) and academics (Stewards). This undergraduate eJournal will be underpinned by an action research element and consequently will provide a project template for increasing awareness of importance of undergraduate research communication and dissemination at a national level.
NovoVerse welcomes articles from a broad range of business and information management topics submitted from single or multiple authors. We also welcome guest papers from all other academic institutions. Theoretical and practical research (including case studies and business project reports) providing useful insights will be considered. Our editorial philosophy is to strive for a balance between theoretical and practical topics. All accepted research articles will be published electronically here on the NovoVerse eJournal website. Accepted research articles will demonstrate a high caliber of theoretical underpinning, encompass empirically based investigation and include both theoretical and practical impactful contributions. Authors of published papers will be invited to present their research at the annual NUI Galway undergraduate research conference.
