Important Announcement:  We've discovered that the email relay system on our journal server failed at some (as yet) unknown point in the past.  This means editors have not been receiving updates or messages sent by authors through the system, and authors have not been receiving updates from editors.  Until the situation is rectified, we've temporarily disabled submissions of new articles.  This is not a long term change in the status of the journal; we'll begin accepting articles again when the email relay is fixed, and when we have manually contacted authors as necessary to sort out the current status of their submissions.

 

Information about this Journal:  Faculty may be involved in the research and writing, through advising, mentoring, editing, and being a coauthor, but the majority of the original work and writing must be completed by students.

Students must have completed the research while undergraduates, although they do not need to be undergraduates at the time of submission. Each paper must be sponsored by a sponsor familiar with the work who will write a letter of support. Normally the sponsor would be a faculty member who supervised the research, but it could be any professional mathematician who has discussed the work with the student, and given feedback about the results and the writing.

Part of our mission is to mentor undergraduates about the publication process. Submissions should be made by the students, not the sponsors. The editors will communicate with the students and will often provide more informal feedback than other journals. Although many of the articles are refereed by faculty around the country, we also give graduate students a chance to review articles and learn about that aspect of the process.

Articles will be published as they are accepted, with each volume corresponding to a calendar year.  Find more information about the journal in the About menu above, including:
