SFU MSc student Inderjeet Sahota and University of Toronto colleague Wilson Wong have started an online health-science research journal called Health Science Inquiry (HSI) where grad students can submit commentaries on the latest health sciences developments.

"We envision HSI as a platform where students can share their insight on a different issue every year," says Sihota.

"We also plan to partner with a peer-reviewed journal for each issue that will grant a select number of submissions for expedited review and possibly publication in their journal."

For its inaugural issue in May, HSI is focusing on the H1N1 pandemic and its impact on society and has partnered with The Lancet Infectious Diseases—one of the top journals in the field of health and diseases.

"We hope this issue will give readers a broad perspective on the H1N1 pandemic and we encourage all students to participate in the discussion of this year’s commentaries and submit their own articles for future issues."

This year’s three top submissions as selected by a national jury of health science professors will receive a one-year subscription to The Lancet Infectious Diseases. The top author could also have his or her article published in the prestigious journal.
