CTUP Late Breaking News:Undergraduate Research Web Site
A joint effort between Missouri Western State College and the National Science Foundation has created the National

Undergraduate Research Clearinghouse, an interdisciplinary web site dedicated to the dissemination of undergraduate research.
The site, located at http://clearinghouse.mwsc.edu, allows students to post their research projects as web pages. Easy,
automated mechanisms for submission, editing, and review are included. All student manuscripts must have a faculty sponsor,
and APS members are encouraged to register as sponsors (instructions are posted on the site).

In addition to using the site to post student research papers, students and faculty may be interested in using the site as a source
of examples of undergraduate research. A chat/discussion area is also included.
