STEM Fellowship Journal


An open-access peer-reviewed journal that publishes scholarly research by high school and university students in the STEM fields.


what we do

The STEM Fellowship Journal (SFJ) is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal supported by Canadian Science Publishing (Canada’s biggest journal publisher) which publishes STEM research conducted by high school, undergraduate, and graduate authors. Our journal is a unique platform to showcase student research from all over the world and serves as the flagship initiative of the Science Communications division at STEM Fellowship. Please visit the journal website for more information.

The SFJ is the only journal published by Canadian Science Publishing that is dedicated to students in high school and university.

how we work

The SFJ is led by the editor-in-chief, and founder of both SFJ and STEM Fellowship, Dr. Sacha Noukhovitch, along with a student editorial board, consisting of dedicated and exceptional high school and undergraduate students, with strong backgrounds in both scientific writing, editing and communication. SFJ strives to maintain a group of talented and diverse students. The current composition includes students from around Canada as well as from Iran, Russia and Pakistan.

The student editorial board are the initial reviewers of SFJ submissions, working closely with leading research scientists, teachers, and student-authors from around the world. Upon manuscript submission, a member of the SFJ’s student editorial board will review the manuscript and offer feedback to authors. After manuscripts are reviewed by our student editorial board, they are sent for peer review by a PhD, MD, or a PharmD in the relevant discipline.

SFJ student editors are closely associated with the scholarly publication community and follow the standards of academic publication. They maintain professional contact with leading scholarly publishing societies while also reaching out to various scientific institutions on behalf of SFJ.  This may include special projects for STEM Fellowship and/or SFJ, or overseeing aspects of the editorial and publishing process.

New members are accepted after an interview by the Director of the editorial board, the completion of an editing assessment and a review of the candidate’s technical writing samples.

If you have any questions, concerns or comments, or would like to join the editorial board, please email the STEM Fellowship Journal’s Editorial Lead at
