Ask A Scientist

Have an idea for an experiment, but aren't sure how to proceed? Need help interpreting the data you have collected? Looking for advice on scientific research? Ask A Scientist from the Journal of Emerging Investigators offers an opportunity to correspond with a scientist pen pal to answer all of your questions. Simply fill out the form below, and we will match you with a scientist who can help get your experiment off the ground and ready for publication!

You may also be interested in filling out an Experimental Design Worksheet (PDF). While this is not required we recommend spending some time with it, as it will help you design and prepare for your experiment.

Ask-A-Scientist office hours are now available for online counseling sessions

If you’d be interesting in speaking directly to one of our scientist, please make sure to sign up for a 15-minute session using the Google Spreadsheet here.

The next Ask-A-Scientist session will be on Saturday, January 23rd at 9 am Eastern Time and the second on January 23rd at 8 pm Eastern time.
