Cambridge Handbook of Undergraduate Research

The new Cambridge Handbook of Undergraduate Research presents a sweeping overview of undergraduate research (UR) programs worldwide. Representing 29 disciplines and 25 countries, the more than 200 authors and reviewers of the Handbook provide the first truly global, comprehensive, and systematic account of UR. As this Handbook reaffirms, there is considerable evidence, from varied national perspectives, that undergraduate engagement in research develops a wide range of professional and personal skills. These include not only the skills required for research and inquiry, but also the ability to deal with complexity and ambiguity, preparing students for whatever challenges they may encounter in their future lives. Written in an engaging style, yet wide-ranging in its scope, the Handbook is essential reading for anyone seeking a broader understanding of how undergraduate research is implemented worldwide. The Forewords by Lindsay Currie, and Mick Healey and Alan Jenkins are on open access.
