Mission Statement

SOAR is SUNY Oneonta's open access undergraduate social science journal. This selective peer-reviewed forum is student-run and faculty-advised. The primary goal is to provide undergraduate students from any university with an outlet for publishing rigorous academic research.

About SOAR

In September of 2016, four undergraduate students working with Dr. Gregory Fulkerson, created SOAR (SUNY Oneonta Academic Research), an undergraduate social science research journal. Founding and succeeding members develop scholastic leadership, experience real life career rehearsal, and practice scholarly writing. SOAR will always remain student-run and faculty-advised to ensure the integrity of the journal, and uphold our commitment to student growth and experience. To ensure a collaborative experience at SOAR, new team members are mentored one on one by previous members. Although SOAR takes article submissions from any university, our editorial board is SUNY Oneonta based. If you are interested in joining SOAR as an editor or peer reviewer, please contact us at
