The International Youth Science Journal(IYSJ) is a peer-reviewed science journal written by high schoolers and dedicated to make science simple for everyone. If you are looking for an easy way to explore your interests in the STEM field, then you are at the right place!

For Students:

We aim to provide secondary students with bite-sized science content that can hopefully inspire them to further explore their interests in the STEM field. All of our writers and editors are high schoolers so you will never be buried in terminologies like you might be when in school. If you would like to become a writer or a peer-editor, visit our Become a Writer page.


For Educators:

Our goal is to promote science literacy so feel free to use/reuse/adapt any of our articles for any educational purposes as long as you give credit. All articles in the International Youth Science Journal(IYSJ) are peer-reviewed and well-cited. Through our strict policies on article sources, we hope to become a high-quality source of science literature for secondary students.
