Mathematical Journal for High School Students
Intelligence Planet Journal of Mathematics and its Applications is a mathematical journal focused on mathematical topics with articles and papers submitted by high school students. The goal of the journal is to give pre-college students an opportunity to share their experimental research results and get experience in writing formal articles and papers.
Intelligence Planet is published by Areteem Institute on a quarterly basis. All manuscripts must be written in English and are subject to a rigorous and fair review process.
Articles and papers published in Intelligence Planet should be about mathematics or applications of mathematics. Science, technology, and engineering topics are allowed as long as the submission has a strong mathematical component. This journal contains a wide range of topics, including but not limited to novel mathematical research, introduction, review and summary of current research and development of a certain field, history and historical people in mathematics, recreational mathematics, mathematical competitions, and proposed mathematical problems and solutions.

Why submit a paper/article to Intelligence Planet?
Instructions for Authors
Manuscripts for Intelligence Planet should be submitted via email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The corresponding author is responsible for the manuscript during the submission and review process. The submitting author must ensure that all eligible co-authors have been included in the author list and that they have all read and approved the submitted version of the manuscript. The content of the manuscript should be an original work by the authors, and should not be copyrighted, published in, or submitted to any other journal, except in an abstract form.
- Conflict of interest should be disclosed by the authors during the submission of a manuscript. If a financial or personal conflict exists that might bias the judgment, an acknowledgment must accompany the submitted manuscript. If no such acknowledgment is included, an assumption is made of no conflict of interest.
- Copyright of open-access publications is retained by the authors under a CC-BY license.
- Authorship should be restricted to those who made a significant contribution to the conception, design, and execution of the research in question. Others who contributed to a lesser extent should be named in the acknowledgment section.
- Data sharing is encouraged by the journal but is not required. The decision to publish will not be affected by whether or not authors share their research data.
- Scientific misconduct will not be tolerated. Duplicate submissions of published elsewhere materials will be rejected, and, if detected only soon after publication, the journal reserves the right to retract the article.
Review is conducted for each manuscript that meets the format requirements of the journal. Each manuscript is reviewed by two independent reviewers chosen from the pool of potential reviewers for the journal. The area of expertise in the appropriate field plays a decisive role in the choice of reviewers. A double-blind review model is adopted, keeping all authors and reviewers anonymous. Conflict of interest may be present if a student’s research supervisor is on the editorial board of this journal. In this case, the reviewers will be chosen to exclude the supervisor.
- Manuscripts should be prepared in LaTex. All figures and supplemental files should be collated into a single zipped folder, allowing editors to recompile the PDF file.
- Manuscript should have the following basic structure: title, name(s) or author(s), affiliation(s), email address of the corresponding author, abstract (not exceeding 150 words), keywords, mathematics subject classification (MSC 2020), introduction (laying out scope, goal, and organization of the paper), main text, conclusion, acknowledgements (if applicable), and references. For a sample paper in LaTex, please click here.
- The references list should be prepared in accordance to the American Mathematical Society (AMS) style.
This journal is sponsored by the Zoom Educational Foundation and Resources (ZEFR), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
