This is a list of both past and current partnerships led by the STEM Fellowship’s Science Communication division.

Current partners: Canadian Science Publishing, Digital Science, Youth Science Canada, the Knowledge Society

Canadian Science Publishing

Canadian Science Publishing (CSP) is Canada’s independent, not-for-profit leader in mobilizing science-based knowledge, making it easy to discover, use, and share. As Canada’s largest publisher of international scientific journals, we’re committed to strengthening the integrity, relevance, reach, and impact of vital knowledge and research, across Canada and around the globe.

CSP currently owns and publishes 24 diverse internationaljournals with distribution in more than 175 countries, and provides publishing services to an additional 15 titles. Featuring content from a global community of researchers,our publications are supported by a team of internationally renowned subject-expert Editors and peer reviewers. Our journals cover fields across the spectrum of science and engineering, with a focus on fundamental and applied sciences.As a first mover in open access, interdisciplinary journals, we connect researchers from diverse fields, enablingthem to contribute to solving key world challenges.

Youth Science Canada

YSC is Canada’s leading national organization engaging youth through science in inquiry and critical thinking. With over 500,000 young Canadians that participate in youth science events, Youth Science Canada aims to nurture the scientific impulse amongst Canadian youth.

Partners In Research Canada

Partners in Research Canada (PIR) a registered Canadian charity founded in 1988 to help Canadians understand the significance, accomplishments and promise of biomedical research in advancing health and medicine. Since its genesis, PIR has broadened its scope to encompass Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) as fields of discovery and study for Canadian students. PIR is the proud host of the Sanofi Biogeneius Challenge, a program that nurtures young minds and fosters great talent for the future, challenging high school students to carry out groundbreaking research projects in the field of biotechnology.


ORCID provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized.

Society for Canadian Women in Science and Technology (SCWIST)
The Society for Canadian Women In Science and Technology, or SCWIST, was founded in 1981 as a not-for-profit association aiming at encouraging women into science, engineering and technology; supporting and promoting the education of girls and women through programs and activities in partnership with the community.

The Knowledge Society (TKS)

The knowledge Society is Human accelerator developing young people to solve the world’s biggest problems.

Universal Scientific Education and Research Network (USERN)

The Universal Scientific Education and Research Network (USERN) is an international scientific network of 400 of the world’s top 1% scientists and 13 Nobel laureates and more than 8500 young scholars from 68 countries. USERN is an initiative to realize peaceful and humanitarian promotion of education and research and remove borders for a fruitful interaction of juniors and pioneers in science all over the world.

USERN is universally known for the USERN Prize, a 5000 USD prize for five young scientists under 40 years old, with outstanding and multidisciplinary scientific achievements. The USERN Prize is bestowed on the closing day of the USERN Congress on November 10th, United Nation’s designated day of “science for peace and development”. Young, achieved scientists under 40 years of age, can apply by any novel advancement or achievement in scientific education, research, or achievements serving the humanity in five scientific fields, including Formal sciences, Physical sciences, Biological sciences, Medical sciences, and Social sciences.

National Integrative Research Conference (NiRC)

NiRC is an integrative research conference attracting undergraduates and keynote speakers from universities across Canada and the US from the diverse fields of Arts and Science. The conference is an annual one-day conference held at McGill University in Montréal, Quebec with the goal of promoting undergraduate research in interdisciplinary fields. The conference consists of oral and poster research presentations, lunch, and wine and cheese in the evening for students to mingle with professors and speakers.


Western Student Research Conference

WSRC is an organization that holds undergraduate research conference at theUniversity of Western Ontario. WSRC gives undergraduate students the opportunity to showcase their research in the form of a poster or a 10-minute oral presentation.


LabRoots is the leading scientific social networking website, offering top scientific trending news and premier educational virtual events and webinars. Contributing to the advancement of science through content sharing capabilities, LabRoots is a powerful advocate in amplifying global networks and communities.


Past partners:


The Undergraduate Engineering Research Day (UnERD)

We have partnered with UnERD (located at the University of Toronto) for 2017 and 2018.
For the 2016 UnERD, the STEM Fellowship Journal sponsored the publication of one manuscript. The nominated student was Chris J. Zhang, who then published the following research project: In Vivo Potential of Manganese Chelated Porphysomes as MRI Contrast Agents.

For the 2017 UnERD, the STEM Fellowship Journal agreed to offered a 50% fee waiver to publish one manuscript, and to publish two graphical abstracts (at no cost to UnERD or the student). So far, Kelvin Chow (an undergraduate student at the University of Toronto’s Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering) has published a graphical abstract illustrating his lab’s work: Development of Visual Feedback Training Using Functional Electrical Stimulation Therapy for Balance Rehabilitation.


John Polanyi Collegiate Institute’s Metamorphosis Girls STEM Conference (2018)

The mission of the Metamorphosis Girls STEM Conference is to inspire and support girls to build and sustain their innate interests in STEM through a day of hands-on workshops, inspirational speakers and mentorship. 
This conference will take place at the John Polanyi Collegiate Institute on 8th March 2018.

STEM Fellowship has partnered with the #MORPH2018 conference in order to:
– Lead a Coding 101 workshop
– Offer a speaker for the panel session (Judy Chen) and a STEM Talks session speaker (Farah Qaiser)
– Host the #MySTEMStoryIs contest!
