The Journal of Student Research (JSR) is dedicated to publishing and reviewing academic research from high school students. With its very own “High School Portal,” JSR encourages high school students to take on comprehensive research projects and submit their work for publication. By publishing your work in JSR, you open countless possibilities to share your ideas with the world and contribute to future researchers who will go on to cite your work in theirs. Your work can become the next breakthrough! 

Students entering research to JSR submit projects to specific categories based on their grade level. 9th graders can submit AP Capstone Research projects, 10th graders write research articles, 11th graders work on review articles, and 12th graders can create their own research projects. All JSR papers should fall within the sciences, social sciences or humanities while most papers are typically anywhere between 5 to 10 pages. JSR makes it easy for students by providing them with a sample template that includes all of the formatting details students need to know when compiling their research. Whether you are interested in examining cognitive biases or creating a comparative analysis of AI versus human intelligence, JSR is the right place for you. You have the freedom and flexibility to explore—and finesse your researching skills in the process. 

J&B works closely with students on JSR projects, assisting them in selecting a research topic and approach that suits their needs. As the consulting team works back and forth with students to finalize their research, each paper becomes a distinct, polished product—a unique contribution to academia.
