Thank you.
Research paper? Or do you mean just inspiring articles and such?

Quanta has some of these, you can get a gist of various topics without having a deep understanding of the mathematics involved. Of course, the motivating part is to continue your studies (as mathman has suggested) so that you can understand it, and then truly appreciate it.

I will try to learn calculus as soon as possible, but meanwhile I want to learn something beginners can understand. Such as 3n+1 problem(Collatz Conjecture).

Thank you for providing me with the magazine link. Where can I find simple research papers?

The Staus Erdos conjecture might be another one that you can understand at face value. In fact, some of the member here have made a game out of finding solutions for different n values. See here.

I'm not sure about published papers that require algebra only. Researchgate and arxiv are just a couple of many places to find free research papers. As i said though, not sure about them being 'simple'.
