Greetchen Diaz's picture

"One of the pleasures of research is when a refereed journal accepts to publish your technical work." says Dr. Mauricio Cabrera Ríos, professor at the Industrial Engineering Department, University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez, when he explains why the idea of creating the Journal of Undergraduate Research Students (JOUST) arose.

JOUST is both an idea and a quasi acronym. As an idea, JOUST captures the spirit of a medieval fair in which we entered combat to advance knowledge. As a quasi acronym, it is the "Journal of Undergraduate Research Students".  Although the "Research" part is out of the acronym, it can be emphasized when the full name is written out.
