About the Journal

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. The Academy produces two issues annually: peer-reviewed April Program Abstracts (Issue No. 1) and peer-reviewed full papers in December (Issue No. 2). The Ohio State University Libraries publishes both issues Open Access online on behalf of The Ohio Academy of Science. The Academy distributes a print version of the April Program Abstracts at the annual meeting. Peer-reviewed articles are published as accepted throughout the year and compiled at year end into a single, digital volume. 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.
