Hub Leaders are teachers who want to encourage young scientists at their school or in their area. The main purpose of a YSJ Hub is to provide a place for students to undertake original research, which students can then submit for publication to the journal. A Hub is usually run as a weekly activity or club, where interested or selected students attend and can also work on the journal: editing, publishing, or promoting and expanding the journal’s reach. The Hub Leader facilitates and guides their Hub.
Similar to being a peer-reviewer for journals, Academic Advisors are professional scientists, academics or specialist STEM teachers who advise our editorial team on subject detail that may come their way whilst editing an article. The time commitment is minimal: we’ll let you know when there is a query relating to your area of expertise, and all that’s needed is a willingness to look over an article and advise the student editor on the validity of the science.
If you are a company, institution or individual who is passionate about science communication, young people doing original research in schools, or wanting to become more involved in encouraging young people to pursue a passion for science, why not become a YSJ partner? We feature our partners and sponsors at our annual conferences and in our bi-annual print publication.
