If so, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics is pleased to share a new opportunity for students to publish their work in a well-known and respected journal, the Monthly Labor Review (MLR), in a new pilot project called the Student MLR.

The Student MLR provides an opportunity for students to refine their analytical abilities, receive comments from experienced professionals, develop their research conjectures for graduate study, gain professional experience, and produce new knowledge. Subjects that the Student MLR publishes include, but are not exclusive to, demographics, labor economics, prices, environment, community research, and social statistics.
