Submitting Original Research

How exciting to know that you are about to contribute meaningful information to the world-wide body of scientific knowledge! Conducting, analysing, and publishing scientific data has well-established expectations and protocols that this journal will uphold and help you master. Therefore, don’t view your journal submission as the final step, but rather, as the first step of next process: getting published. Our editorial and publication process is focused on encouraging and instructing young scientist (you!). Therefore, be excited and open to uplifting feedback and positive editorial comments and suggestions from our awesome and accomplished Scientific Editorial Board. We pledge to work with you to produce a final publication that will reflect the highest standards of scientific reporting. Thank you for giving us this opportunity!

First things first--original research means that your submission is unique, not copied or duplicated from others and that you have acknowledged (“cited”) everyone else’s thoughts and contributions to your paper. Simply stated, don’t copy other people’s work and don’t take credit for something you didn’t do. Next, combine that principle with honest and truthful scientific reporting--don’t lie, exaggerate, or minimize, and report the truth even if it surprises you. Let these principles guide your steps and you will not only become a trusted and respected scientist or innovator, but a person that can change the world!
