Aquila: The FGCU Student Research Journal

Aquila: The FGCU Student Research Journal publishes exceptional student scholarship from all academic disciplines and levels of study at Florida Gulf Coast University.

Student scholarship stands at the heart of university life and is one of the most rewarding ways for students to contribute to their field of study, but it also expands their personal knowledge and academic growth. Aquila encourages students to participate in this exciting endeavor and to share their ideas and findings with scholars inside and outside their discipline to enrich the community’s body of knowledge as a whole.

Aquila invites students to develop and share their academic expertise by publishing original scholarship. We welcome submissions from graduate and undergraduate students regardless of major, from history to bioengineering, from education to hospitality and resort management, from exercise science to biology, and anything and everything between.

 All submissions are formally reviewed by the editorial board, students, and faculty experts. Submissions are held to thorough academic standards of originality, accuracy, and presentation. Through this process, we hope that students will develop their skills as writers and researchers, as we also hope to inspire others to undertake research when they read the published articles on an array of captivating subjects.
