Audeamus was started in 2007 at UC Riverside as a multidisciplinary honors journal for undergraduate students across the University of California (UC) system. Based at University Honors (UH) in UC Riverside, the journal started with the belief that students should be able to showcase any work that was of the highest merit, no matter what it was. There were many academic journals and literary magazines out there, but not as many places where anything could be published.
From 2007 to 2015, Audeamus was an annual journal put together by UCR University Honors students, but containing the work of undergraduate students across the nine University of California schools. In 2016, Audeamus published its 10th edition and decided that with its 11th edition, it would become a national journal to be able to accept submissions from beyond just the UC system.
The Audeamus journal still publishes works of all mediums – from research papers to artwork and photography to musical scores – basically anything reproducible on paper. Audeamus is produced by UCR University Honors students of all disciplines and majors; the students do everything from research and advertisement, to journal design and submissions. Flipping through the pages of any issue, you can find an organic chemistry research paper right next to a literary analysis, and just down the table of contents, you might find some photography or a biology paper.
The world is a fairly eclectic place, so why not our journal? That’s what our name means in Latin: Let us dare. Let us dare to publish a journal that is as varied as the world is.
