Topics for papers may come from many sources. For example, 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
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.
