Submit your research to Equilibrium

Equilibrium is a Warren undergraduate research publication. This research publication publishes research of talented UCSD undergraduates from all disciplines. Our goal is to make research more widespread across the undergraduate community and help students learn about the importance of research in society today and be inspired in pursuing research of their own.

We are currently accepting research submissions for the journal. Additionally, this journal would be a great place for students to publish their senior honors theses and advertise them to a wider community!

If students are interested in submitting research or have any questions, please have them contact us at warrenequilibrium@gmail.com. We want this journal to highlight the students’ successes in research!

Students can also visit this site for our previous publications: http://warrenequilibrium.ucsd.edu/publications.html
