Call for Graduate Student Video Submissions

February 05, 2014

Current or recently graduated Ph.D. students in any discipline of science are invited to submit a video (five minutes or less) to be featured on the website of the Canadian Young Scientist Journal - the only open access scholarly publication under the NRC Research Press. Videos should be related to your research; they can focus on an interesting experiment, a novel finding, or an application that has resulted from research, and should be both informative and entertaining (animations, demonstrations of experiments, and clips of fieldwork are all fair game). These videos will be referenced and catalogued on the CYSJ website.

Recent Ph.D. graduates are also invited to submit the abstract of their thesis to be included in our new Annual Review of Graduate Research. This Review is meant to catalogue the research of the national graduating doctoral class, and will be available for our young readers (and the general public) to browse through, in the hopes of sparking their interest in scientific research.

Videos and Ph.D. thesis abstracts can be sent to with 'Ph.D. Submission' in the subject line. Any questions can also be directed to the above email address.
