Journal of Emerging Investigators

A new peer reviewed open access journal for middle and high school students!

The Journal of Emerging Investigators is an open-access journal that publishes original research written by middle and high school students in biological and physical science.  JEI provides students, under the guidance of a teacher or advisor, the opportunity to submit and gain feedback on original research and to publish their findings in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. Because grade-school students often lack access to formal research institutions, we expect that the work submitted by students may come from classroom-based projects, science fair projects, or other forms of mentor-supervised research.

My kids are writing their science fair papers in this journal’s format next year. And I’m planning on using articles from it as teaching tools.
