El Camino: Journal of Interdisciplinary Research is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal produced by the Student Inquiry and Research (SIR) Program at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy (IMSA). It is dedicated to the publication of outstanding research and creative works from all academic disciplines. El Camino accepts submissions in a variety of fields including original research articles, works of fiction or poetry, visual art, and more. We welcome submissions from any contributor, students and professionals alike.


Heliotrope, IMSA’s literary and arts magazine, began with the simple goal to spread appreciation of the literary and artistic talents of IMSA students and staff around the campus and community. Oftentimes, in the midst of our hectic lives and never-ending workload, we forget to appreciate. We forget to take a step back, breathe, and take in the art and beauty around us.
