Founded in 2019, Veritas: Villanova Research Journal (VVRJ) is the first peer-reviewed undergraduate research journal at Villanova University. VVRJ promotes investigation and discovery, the peer review process, and the work of Villanova students and their faculty mentors by publishing scholarly work across all fields of study. VVRJ publishes student research that meets its standards, is authored by Villanova undergraduates or recent graduates, and promotes the pursuit of truth.

VVRJ is currently published annually, in print and online. All Villanova undergraduates who have undertaken mentored research (both inside and outside the classroom) are encouraged to apply. Alumni are also eligible to submit within three years of their graduation from Villanova. Submissions from other researchers (e.g., visiting undergraduates, high school students) will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you would like to discuss whether your submission is eligible for publication in VVRJ, please contact the Editors-in-Chief at

VVRJ is sponsored by the Villanova Center for Research and Fellowships and Falvey Library.
