Research Papers

Under this section, we accept and publish preprints that 1. review a scientific or scholarly topic by surveying the relevant academic literature, open questions, current topics of interest and future directions; or 2. are based on hypothesis-driven experimental or theoretical research.  We only accept research preprints that the authors conducted themselves. All submissions to the Review Paper Preprint Section must include comprehensive citations and a Bibilography section. Please note that we do not conduct peer review of the contents of your paper.

The Research Archive of Rising Scholars welcomes any and all submissions of creative work!  Whether you have an anthology of poems, a short story, or a screenplay script, feel free to submit it for consideration in our pre-print server.
