Our Mission

At the Journal of Emerging Investigators (JEI), we believe young scientists learn best when they practice science through research, publication, peer review, and reading the research of others. We are committed to providing the tools, mentorship, and community necessary for any middle or high school student to publish their research project, and to read about the research of others. Identifying as a scientist early on is formative in empowering students to pursue their dreams, and we strive to help all students, especially those from backgrounds historically underrepresented in STEM, recognize their potential as scientists early in their academic careers.
