Scope of the Project -PPJ

    Guidelines for Scope

    ( Please click here to see other types of project submission )

    Besides the Research Paper Competition(RPC), JYEM seeks to publish innovative scholarly manuscripts on humanities, science, engineering and social studies. A study that emphasizes any human, social, philosophy, economy and life science phenomenon as a major cause or effect can be the journal’s domain. Additionally, JYEM features articles that contribute in some way to the improvement of general knowledge or empirical theory defined broadly. Although we may publish a manuscript designed to propose a solution to science, social, and current world problems, we prefer to publish those that also apply theoretical ideas and findings or address general questions debated in the scholarly community. The standards of JYEM’s reviewers are high. Before submitting their work, authors are strongly encouraged to seek advice and detailed comments from colleagues or mentors.

    Sciences, Human and Social Research

    Science, Humanitarian and Social Science

    We suggest science(life science and physical science), human, social, philosophy, economy, engineering/math and other students who collaborate with numerous other social, business, and human researchers in colleges and organizations to submit projects.

    Typical topics that we mainly accept under human, social studies, and philosophy include the followings:

    • Physical Sciences and Life Sciences
    • Engineering, Math and Computer Science
    • Social science, Psychology, Human, and Political science
    • Philosophy and History
    • Public administration
    • Art and Music

    Experimental Science

    The experiment should measure variables using quantifiable values, like numbers. For instance, measure data such as a count, percentage, length, width, weight, voltage, velocity, energy, time, etcetera. Alternatively, you may assess a variable that simply presents itself, or does not. For example, you can turn the lights on in one trial, then turn them off in another. Or, use fertilizer in one trial, none in the other. Remember that in science, progress must be measurable.
    You need to control the other factors that can change your experiment, so that each trial is fair. A "fair test" consists of only one variable being changed in the experimental environment; all other conditions are the same. Ensure that your experiment is safe to perform.

    - Can you obtain all of the materials needed for your experiment? Consider accessibility and affordability as well as the time it takes to acquire the materials.
    - Is there enough time to fully conduct your experiment. Consider things like growing time! Most experiments yield for enough time to run a test trial to refine your procedures.
    - Ensure that your project meets the rules and requirements for your particular science fair
    - Consult the Science Fair Topics to Avoid to make sure your topic is impressive and doable.
    - If you are finding trouble with some of these tips, you may want to consider a different topic that better matches these guidelines.
    - Remember that science fair projects that use human subjects, animals with backbones, or animal tissue, pathogenic agents, DNA, or controlled or hazardous substances, often require approval from the Scientific Review Committee prior to your particular science fair. Consult your teacher or science fair coordinator for restrictions and rules for your particular fair. In addition, use the Scientific Review Committee page for more information in general.
