Chronicle of The New Researcher Publishes First Article
Sigma Xi's new journal, Chronicle of The New Researcher, achieved a major milestone in July by publishing its first article! The article was written by Rema Shah, a student at Raleigh Charter High School in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Any pre-collegiate student worldwide is welcome to submit their outstanding research manuscript related to science, technology, engineering, or math at www.ctnr.org. The majority of manuscripts that will be accepted for publication will come from secondary school students, but exceptional work by younger students will be considered.
Chronicle of The New Researcher is an online, refereed journal that helps prepare students for careers as professional researchers by giving them experience in publishing a manuscript. Sigma Xi members may volunteer to review students' manuscripts and guide them through the publishing process. Those who wish to be a mentor-reviewer should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Publishing in Chronicle of The New Researcher does not require any fees from the students or their schools. Initial funding was provided by DIRECTV and Sigma Xi. DIRECTV recently provided its second year of support for the project with a $100,000 gift.
