Presenting Your Research
The opportunity to present your research in a professional, public setting is the ultimate outcome of a research project.  We encourage all students participating in undergraduate research at ETSU to plan to present their results.  If you currently are in a designated Honors program at ETSU, presentation of your Senior Honors Thesis at a public and publicized event is a requirement of your program.  

There are many venues for presentation, including local, regional or national/international meetings either in a professional discipline or dedicated to undergraduate research.  You should plan to present the results of your research or creative project at one of the following:

  • A Seminar announced by the department
  • The annual Appalachian Student Research Forum sponsored by ETSU.  This Research Forum enables graduate and undergraduate students to present the results of the completed research projects. Undergraduate presentations are limited to posters.
  • The ETSU Undergraduate Research Symposium sponsored by The Honors College and open to all undergraduate students who wish to give oral presentations of their research prospectus, preliminary results of on-going studies, or final results. This symposium is intended to provide undergraduates the opportunity to discuss and receive feedback and ideas from others.
  • A national undergraduate research forum (e.g., National Conference on Undergraduate Research)
  • A regional, national or international professional meeting in your field

When possible, we’ll try to add announcements of the more specialized professional conferences who invite and welcome undergraduate research presentations.

If you presentation is accepted at a regional, national, or international professional conference, you can apply for a Travel Award from the Honors College to help support your attendance at the meeting.  You’ll need to have documentation of acceptance for presentation and a budget; we recommend you consult with your faculty sponsor before submitting a request for this award program.

We also hope you will have the goal of publishing your research in an appropriate journal as publishing your work is another venue for presenting results.  Please visit our website on Publishing Your Research to find links to a variety of publications and options.  You should know that simply “posting” your results on the Internet does NOT qualify as professional publication.
