Who Should Submit?


Topics for papers may come from many sources. For example, the REU programs generate interesting, and often, original work. 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, relationships between areas of mathematics and/or other fields of study, or interesting applications of mathematics.
