"Perpetua" is Latin for everlasting. We chose this name to represent the unceasing pursuit of knowledge at the heart of academia. Our logo is the torch, a symbol of the light of knowledge which must be continually passed on to the next generation. Perpetua is a student-run, multidisciplinary journal that showcases the research of undergraduate students at the University of Alabama Huntsville. We publish quality, mentor-supported research in all fields of study. Our mission is to promote interdisciplinary appreciation and provide students with the opportunity to engage in research, whether it be by publishing their research or working on the Perpetua staff. The journal is peer-reviewed and accessible to all online.
