The Oak Leaf

LSUA-TheOakLeaf-Logo-Vertical-01This undergraduate journal of teaching and research is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal acknowledging the achievements of LSUA students in all areas of teaching and research.

While undergraduate teaching and research are the main focus, research from faculty members are also encouraged for submission. While we primarily accept publications within the LSUA community, we also welcome submissions outside of LSUA.
