In addition to our list, the National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates also funds a variety of summer research opportunities in many college campuses across the U.S. in fields ranging from biomedical medical sciences to economic studies. 

The Institute for Broadening Participation also provides a list of undergraduate summer research opportunities.

JYI has a peer-review process through which undergraduate research editors work with faculty mentors at their institutions to determine the validity of journal submissions. This process closely mimics those found in other professional research journals.
