An Undergraduate Honors Journal

Anthós is a student-run, peer-reviewed, open-access undergraduate academic journal published by the University Honors College (UHC) of Portland State University (PSU). Anthós publishes papers written by PSU undergraduate students from all disciplines, in an attempt to promote the undergraduate academic discussion at PSU, to provide UHC students with the experience of working on an academic journal, and to provide PSU students interested in continuing their education through graduate and professional schools the opportunity to publish their undergraduate research. Anthós is published at the end of each academic year in June.
