Focus and Scope

Journal of Student Research is based in Houston, TX. It is an electronic, peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary journal (ISSN: 2167-1907) devoted to the rapid dissemination of current research. Our aim is to familiarize student authors with the process of manuscript publication. Researchers strive to be successful at publications; and with JOFSR, students aspiring to publish will receive scholarly feedback once their submission is reviewed. These feedbacks will not only help authors identify areas of improvement to their submission, but help them better understand the process in order to be successful at publication. Once published, it will provide a global platform for them to showcase their work.

The journal seeks papers that are novel, integrative, and written in a way that is accessible to a wide audience which includes an array of disciplines. Content of the journal ranges from Applied research to Theoretical research. In general, papers are welcomed from all topics.

The journal uses an automated process from manuscript submission to publication. Manuscript submission, peer review, and publication, are all handled online, and the journal automates all clerical steps during peer review. It allows authors and editors to follow the progress of peer review on the internet.

Our Philosophy

It is said that a student is any person who studies, investigates or examines carefully. A researcher at any level, undergraduate or graduate, is looking for answers and fully engaged in the learning process. Our mission is to promote research from all disciplines and at all levels of academia.
