Publication Timeline

The National High School Journal of Science’s peer review process consists of three steps.

1.) The submitted paper is reviewed by the Editorial Staff and is either rejected or sent for peer review.

2.) The submission is then sent to one or two of our peer reviewers for feedback.

3.) The paper is sent to a member of our Scientist Advisory Board. Our Scientist Advisory Board consists of dedicated researchers and professors who have volunteered their time and expertise to guide the next generation of scientists. They provide valuable feedback which benefits both the original author as well as our peer reviewers.

The submissions are then returned to the author prior to publication with comments designed to improve the submission. After a final stage of copyediting, layout formatting, and proofreading by the Editorial Staff, the submission is then published online. As with other journals, careful measures are taken to preserve the integrity of the peer-review process.

We are always open to individuals or organizations who wish to aid our journal’s efforts to publish high quality work. If you are interested in volunteering your time, please see here or contact the Editor directly.
