Frontiers for Young Minds is an open access scientific journal written for – and reviewed by – young people. We connect 8-15 year olds directly with scientists to provide critical feedback on articles about cutting-edge research. The end result is a journal of freely available scientific articles that are not only rigorous, but also shaped for younger audiences by the input of their own peers.
We guarantee the protection of the identities of our young reviewers and only publish their first names.
Working with enthusiastic researchers we publish articles in the following areas:
Frontiers for Young Minds has been designed to provide two distinct types of resources to general audiences: focused highlights of new scientific findings and broader summaries to provide context and foundational knowledge about a given field.
We will continue to include more fields, and are open to working with funders and sponsors on new and exciting areas.
The team for Frontiers for Young Minds is led by its Editor-in-Chief, Professor Robert Knight (University of California at Berkeley), Project Manager Dr. Amanda Baker, 50 Associate Editors and over 80 Young Mind Reviewers.
