Emerging Female Scientists

Emerging Female Scientists is the only electronic, peer-reviewed, open access journal specifically for female middle and high school students. The journal is unique in that all articles are authored and edited by girls and women, and it was created by and for future women in STEM. Emerging Female Scientists was founded by Margaret DiRuggiero, a high school student who had the vision to encourage STEM research publishing from young women in order to advance women's presence in STEM fields. The publication features writing in the following categories: original research, interviews of prominent or significant women in science, summaries of current scientific events, public policy pieces, and historical biographies. Emerging Female Scientists has published two volumes (as of this write-up), Spring and Fall 2019, which can be found on the Articles page. Additionally, teachers of middle school students may want to check out the Publication Process and Types of Publications pages to learn more about opportunities for their students to get published. The website is currently in the process of adding resources for those interested in starting STEM clubs in their own schools, so teachers should stay tuned for additional content to come.
