Undergraduate Research Journals: Math and Physics

This guide contains information for undergraduates interested in publication. Journals are divided into categories with links to each.

Tips for Writers

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected scholars all over the world, leading to changes in research timelines and journal publishing. Fear not! Many of the journals on this guide accept undergraduate manuscripts up to a year after graduation.


Academic publishing requires attention to detail. Ask yourself these questions before submitting a paper to an academic journal.

  • Does my paper fit within the journal's subject area?
  • Is my paper correctly formatted?
    • Is it within the journal's word limit or page limit?
    • Are my sources properly cited in the journal's required style? (For example, APA stye)
    • Have I included all the materials the journal wants me to submit? (For example, a cover letter, title page, or abstract)
  • Am I submitting my paper before the publication deadline? (Most journals in this list do not have deadlines, but some do)
  • Have I had a professor, colleague, friend, etc. proofread my paper so there are no errors?
