Submit an Article to Youth STEM Matters - Youth Led Scientific Journal
Youth STEM Matters is a youth led scientific journal, created by Youth STEM 2030 to provide a platform for young people to share their research findings, ideas and innovations with the world!
We publish articles which have a real world impact, and can help solve some of the biggest global challenges, from the climate emergency, to poverty, to inequalities.
Have you got a science project that you want to take further? Or maybe you've got an idea that uses STEM (science, technology, engineering & maths) to make the world a better place and you want to share it?
If you're aged 22 or under, you can submit your article today! Choose from 3 styles:
- Original Research: new, never done before experimentation, investigation, discovery, design, manufacture or invention.
- Review Article: summarise the current understanding of a specific topic, with author evaluation on the original research undertaken by others.
- Science Communication: blogs, magazine articles, news and interviews.
Your project might be something you completed through a CREST Award, Nuffield Research Placement, Big Bang Fair, a science fair/competition, a STEM Club, as part of coursework for a qualification, as an extra-curricular activity, or as a personal project. However you started your article/project, we'd love to hear from you!
Not sure where to start? We've got plenty of guidance on our website!
