1) Each E-Journal has Unique Submission Guidelines
  • Some E-Journals first require an abstract be submitted via e-mail.
  • Others require students to submit their reports via an online form
  • Almost all E-Journals have editors that review every submission.

2) Internet Safety
  • The teacher must carefully review every submission since students are publishing to a global audience.
  • Make sure to review your school's Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) or other local or state laws regarding publishing student work. All submissions must be in accordance with these policies.

3) Review Questions
  • What are the benefits of engaging students in the same publishing process as professional scientists?
  • What implementation barriers might exist?
  • What might you need to do beforehand to prepare the students for submitting an online lab or research report?
