Young Scientists Journal is one of the best ways to inspire and motivate your students in science and related fields. Suddenly an experiment, research or even just a good piece of homework doesn’t have to be relegated to the ring binder never to be read again, it can be published online and read by thousands from across the world. As the world’s only peer review science journal written and edited by 12-20 year olds, Young Scientists Journal allows students to enter into the world of scientific publishing and journalism like never before.
Inspire your students with some of the top scientists and communicators – through workshops, lectures and more – at our third annual conference, which will be held on the 18th of October 2016 at St Anne’s College, The University of Oxford, UK. Find out more at events.archive.ysjournal.com
Why not refer students to Young Scientists Journal for reading and research, inspired by reading authors who are their own age?
Students can contribute original research or review articles. This might have originated as coursework, a competition (e.g. ISEF, Big Bang), work placement, extended essay, a CREST award or just a good piece of homework. Writing and referencing skills benefit; being a published author enhances university & college applications. See For Students for more information.

We are constantly looking out for talented individuals to join our global team and help run the journal, why not refer your students to Young Scientists Journal? Opportunities include editing, web development, marketing, design, news journalism, social media and much more. Working on a real journal with a team across the globe helps develop a unique skill set and looks great on a CV or university/college application.
Some schools have become Young Scientists Journal hub schools: students meet together regularly to help run aspects of the journal, including editing, social media and more, with the guidance of a teacher. Having a teacher at the school organising the hub ensures continuity across the generations of students. Working on the journal in a group also provides a great deal of fun.

Teachers and professional scientists can support the journal by becoming ambassadors. Ambassadors receive regular news updates about the journal and help spread the word of the journal, encouraging young people or other teachers to get involved. Some ambassadors are advisers, supporting us with expert reviewing, marketing, social media, web development and other areas.
The journal provides an opportunity to carry out scientific research and experiments and have these published, our partner The Royal Society offers grants to schools to allow you to get funding to buy the equipment and more necessary to do this, read more here.
