FAQ

Will my child's personal information be shared? 

We recognize that privacy is an concern for many parents. It is important to note that this journal is open access and thus may be seen by anyone. We do ask for photos and school names/hometown, however please note that this information is recommended only and not required. Please be sure the manuscript does not contain any sensitive information such as addresses or phone numbers.

Is there a chance my child will be rejected?

The CSFJ will only turn down an article if it does not meet the complete requirements or contains plagiarized content. At this stage, the journal is publishing all methodologically sound articles. We do not wish to discourage young scientists by rejecting their work, and hope to work with students to develop the quality of their submissions should they require. 

Am I required to sign off?

Parents or teachers are required to sign off on a student’s manuscript to attest the work’s originality. The Statement of Originality can be found under "For Teachers/Parents".
