The Journal of Undergraduate Reports in Physics (JURP) is a peer-reviewed publication of the Society of Physics Students comprised of research, outreach, and scholarly reporting. This journal is devoted to reports authored by undergraduates in physics, astronomy, and their related fields. It is a vehicle for the exchange of ideas and information by undergraduates and their advisors. A primary goal of the journal is to educate and train students while also providing a means of public dissemination of research and programmatic activities. Occasionally, the journal publishes reviews of physics and astronomy subjects relevant to the community, special issues, and timely topics of interest.
JURP is published by AIP Publishing. Content is collected and published yearly, with the occasional special issue. With help from the associate editors and the Editorial Board, the editor is responsible for the scientific content and other editorial matters pertaining to the journal. Authors must submit manuscripts in an electronic form. A print version of JURP, containing a highlighted selection of submissions, will be sent to all SPS members each summer and is considered a collection of student writing throughout the previous academic year.
All current SPS members in good standing with the SPS National organization are eligible to submit to JURP. The author(s) must have performed all the work reported in the paper as an undergraduate student(s).
