Canadian Science Publishing (NRC Research Press)

The Canadian Young Scientist Journal is a unique scholarly publication that gives secondary school and undergraduate university students their first opportunity to be published in an academic journal. It produces two issues a year that are freely available to every high school, student and teacher in Canada.

The journal has become a focal point of interest among the best and the brightest students across the country and beyond. It features the most promising and extraordinary innovation ideas generated by young people. It introduces the future academic talent and works for quality student recruitment.

As of September 2013, the CYSJ can be found on a new state-of-the-art digital platform provided by Canadian Science Publishing (CSP). This world-class platform is designed to enhance the reading experience; it's a website packed with features and functionality. It also allows for research to be shared quickly, as articles can now be published online ahead of print in an issue. In addition, this site will soon be optimized for mobile devices.

"We're pleased to have a new home for CYSJ. The journal features the most promising and extraordinary innovation ideas selected from over 500 submissions received on an annual basis. It is only fitting that it is displayed on a promising and innovative site," explained Dr. Noukhovitch. "The new digital platform and website have a lot to offer our readers and authors including full text scientific articles in both HTML and PDF formats. CSP has given us a great new site to showcase our journals."

"We're committed to supporting research communities and Canada's young scientists are no exception. The CYSJ allows young people the opportunity to participate in the scientific process and bring new ideas and research to light," says Cameron Macdonald, Executive Director of Canadian Science Publishing. "In partnering with the CYSJ, we're providing the best possible platform for sharing this research with the world."

The September issue of CYSJ is the first to be published in this new format. It can be viewed online at: http://www.CYSJournal.ca/toc/CYSJ/2013/2
