Science and Medical Research

  • NYCSEF seeks to publish innovative scholarly manuscripts on science(Biology, Chemistry, Physics relevant subjects) and medical research.
  • Also we accept environmental and energy research.
  • Students must be in 9th to 12th grad or college and be currently enrolled in science-related courses in a public school, a private school, or a homeschool.

Math and Engineering

  • In this category, student’s projects need to apply mathematical or computational science knowledge to submit the research paper.
  • Also categories relevan to engineering such as mechanical, chemical, electrical engineering or materials study can be in the right category.
  • Students must be in 9th to 12th grad or college and be currently enrolled in math or coputer-related courses in school.

Human and Social Study

  • A paper that emphasizes any human, social, philosophy, business, or economy can be submitted.
  • Social science phenomenon as a major cause or effect can be the journal’s domain as well.
  • Additionally, NYCSEF features articles that contribute in some way to the improvement of general knowledge or empirical theory defined broadly.


Paper Submission

  • NYCSEF accepts applications on a rolling basis but all the final papers and supporting documentation must be submitted by the due date (5/20 or 10/20).
