Undergraduate Publication Opportunities

Journals and other organizations that accept submission from undergraduates

Tips for Authors

Most journals have a list of features that help you determine what kind of articles they accept.  Check these things out first to see if it is a good publication venue for you:

  1. Look for something called About This Journal for a summary of the subject and kind of papers the journal accepts.
  2. Look for the section Instruction for Authors or Submission Guidelines for details on article length, citation style, etc.
  3. Examine articles in past issues to see examples of what they like to publish.

When you get ready to submit, follow the journal's instructions to the letter. 

  • Do you need an abstract?  Should it be separate from the article?
  • Cover letter needed?
  • Using the journal's required style?
