Undergraduate Research Journals for Math and Physics
Involve: A Journal of Mathematics
"Involve showcases and encourages high-quality mathematical research involving students from all academic levels. Submissions in all mathematical areas are encouraged. Submissions should include substantial faculty input; faculty co-authorship is strongly encouraged. Involve, bridging the gap between the extremes of purely undergraduate-research journals and mainstream research journals, provides a venue to mathematicians wishing to encourage the creative involvement of students." Published 5 times per year.
Journal of Young Investigators
"The Journal of Young Investigators is dedicated to representing undergraduate research in biological/biomedical sciences, physical sciences, mathematics and engineering, psychology and social sciences. We accept submissions of original research articles and literature review articles from undergraduate students." Published monthly.
Missouri Journal of Mathematical Sciences
"The Missouri Journal of Mathematical Sciences (MJMS) publishes well-motivated original research articles as well as expository and survey articles of exceptional quality in mathematical sciences. A section of the MJMS is also devoted to interesting mathematical problems and solutions."
The Pentagon is the official journal of Kappa Mu Epsilon. "It is published semiannually in December and May of each year. Articles of interest to undergraduate mathematics students are included, assisting the Society in achieving its objectives. Most of the papers are written by student KME members and many have previously been presented at national or regional conventions."
Pi Mu Epsilon Journal
The Pi Mu Epsilon Journal is interested in considering mathematical papers. Papers written by undergraduates are preferred. Submissions are accepted from any undergraduate student, and membership in Pi Mu Epsilon is not a requirement.
PUMP Journal of Undergraduate Research
"The PUMP Journal of Undergraduate Research publishes articles written by undergraduate students that want to pursue doctoral studies in the Mathematical Sciences." The journal is published at California State University and welcomes submissions of research papers, papers containing new proofs of known results, and expository papers which propose original points of view.
Rose-Hulman Undergraduate Mathematics Journal
"Devoted entirely to papers written by undergraduates on topics related to mathematics. Although the authors need not be undergraduates at the time of submission or publication, the work must have been completed before graduation. Each paper must be sponsored by a mathematician familiar with the student's work and each paper will be refereed. Many departments of mathematics require senior projects or papers. Presentations at undergraduate mathematics conferences could be expanded and made suitable for publication. Work from summer internships requiring mathematical tools also might be appropriate for publication. Although the paper need not contain original research in mathematics, it must be interesting, well written, and at a level that is clearly beyond a typical homework assignment. Readers of the journal should expect to see new results, new and interesting proofs of old results, historical developments of a theorem or area of mathematics, or interesting applications of mathematics." Submission deadlines are February 1 for the spring issue and September 15 for the fall issue.
SIAM Undergraduate Research Online
"SIAM Undergraduate Research Online (SIURO) is a web-based publication devoted to undergraduate research in applied and computational mathematics. The publication represents a wide range of applied topics, including but not limited to, analysis, discrete mathematics, statistics, operations research, optimization, dynamical systems, modeling, and computation. Typical areas of application include but are not limited to, physical, life, financial, and management sciences and engineering. Each paper must be submitted with a letter from a sponsor. Papers will be posted online as they are accepted."
