Call for Papers:
Journal of Undergraduate Research in Physics (JURP)
JURP is a peer-reviewed journal of the Society of Physics Students (SPS) for archiving research conducted by undergraduate physicists. Papers in experimental physics, theoretical physics, or educational research in physics are welcome. Whether you performed cutting-edge research that led to new discoveries, cultivated insights that deepen our appreciation of well-established physics, or asked serious questions about physics education, you have something original to contribute to the ongoing conversation about physics.
The research must have been performed while the student authors were undergraduates, although the paper may be submitted soon after graduation. The primary authors of papers submitted to JURP should be the undergraduates who conducted the work, but faculty mentors are encouraged to be listed as co-authors if their contributions merit such acknowledgment.
There are no submission deadlines, as JURP is published online.
Please visit Article Guidelines to learn more about submitting a paper to JURP for publication.
All JURP submissions are peer-reviewed. Reviewing manuscripts for journals forms part of one’s responsibility as a member of a community of scientists. As an SPS member, you may be asked to review a JURP submission.
