Serving science and society since 1900

The Ohio Journal of Science (OJS) has published peer-reviewed, original contributions to science, education, engineering, and technology since 1900. Authors include academic professionals, undergraduate and graduate students and high-achieving high school students. The OJS encourages submission of manuscripts relevant to Ohio, but readily considers all submissions that advance the mission of The Ohio Academy of Science to foster curiosity, discovery and innovation to benefit society. Annually the Academy publishes two printed issues: peer-reviewed April Program Abstracts and peer-reviewed full papers in December. The Ohio State University Libraries publish Open Access online OJS program abstracts and articles as accepted throughout the year. Because the OJS is an international multidisciplinary journal, authors should write clearly, concisely, and avoid excessive jargon to assure broad understanding of their work by those whose fields may differ from the authors.
