The Morehead Electronic Journal of Applicable Mathematics (MEJAM) is an interdisciplinary journal, sponsored by Morehead State University, which publishes the work of undergraduate students. The goal of MEJAM is to provide a refereed outlet for undergraduates in any discipline to publish quality papers and see the results quickly.
MEJAM accepts papers which are outside the realm of the typical undergraduate curriculum and which emphasize the applicability of mathematics while maintaining significant mathematical interest. Papers may be historical, expository, or completely original in nature but must adhere to strict academic standards and should explore some aspect of the applications of mathematics.
Papers will typically be the result of summer research programs, internships, or other school projects. Papers from all disciplines will be considered for publication.
MEJAM has an editorial board, which consists of members from various disciplines, and a network of referees. Each student submitting a paper must have the support and guidance of a faculty sponsor whose name will appear in the Journal. Faculty sponsors are full-time faculty members who enforce rigorous academic standards and attest that the work was done before the student received a bachelor's degree. Faculty sponsors may be asked to join the pool of referees in their areas of expertise.
The Department of Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics and Morehead State University are devoted to quality undergraduate programs and provide support to MEJAM as evidence of this philosophy.
The editorial board of the journal reserves the right to reject any paper it deems inappropriate.
