Laura Henderson, Head of Program for Public Outreach at Frontiers
Frontiers for Young Minds is a unique, open-access kids’ science journal, providing an amazing collection of freely available scientific articles across six broad scientific fields shown below.
Written by distinguished scientists, each article is reviewed and shaped by an editorial board of young reviewers between the ages of 8 and 15 years old. This unique process introduces and, more importantly, actively involves young kids and teenagers in the scientific process and directly connects them with the active scientists of today. The scientists themselves draw a huge benefit also as this process allows them to greatly improve their skills in communicating their work to a lay audience and provides them with a direct connection to the scientists of tomorrow.
Even before the publication of our first 50 articles, the quality of Frontiers for Young Minds was recognized as one of the American Library Association’s 2014 Great Websites for Kids. Moreover, the journal has been able to attract significant international funding allowing us to publish articles in two additional languages, Hebrew and Arabic.
Frontiers for Young Minds is part of Frontiers, a leading Open Access Publisher and Open Science Platform.
Frontiers journals are led and peer-reviewed by editorial boards of over 100,000 top researchers. Covering more than 900 academic disciplines, we are one of the largest and highest-cited publishers in the world. To date, our freely accessible research articles have received over 1 billion views and downloads and 1.6 million citations.
Frontiers strives to continuously empower the academic community with innovative solutions that improve how science is published, evaluated and communicated to researchers, innovators and the public.
