About

Aleph (pronounced “ah-lef”) is UCLA’s only official journal that publishes undergraduate research in the humanities, social sciences, and behavioral sciences. Run by undergraduates, Aleph publishes select submissions online and in print with the support of our sponsor, the UCLA Undergraduate Research Center – Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences.

UCLA is a world renowned research institution, and not getting involved in research is like visiting a candy store but not buying any chocolate. As a result, our goal is to disseminate a diverse group of papers that reflects the quality and breadth of undergraduate research at UCLA. As a student-run journal, Aleph provides all UCLA undergraduates the chance to join its staff and gain experience in outreach, editing, design, and publishing. For those already involved in research or looking to get involved, Aleph is the place you are looking for!

Aleph is made possible through funding from both the Undergraduate Research Center for the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences and the Division of Undergraduate Education.
