We, the Editorial Board of Jakobsleiter, an interdisciplinary academic journal dedicated to submissions by high school students would like to contribute to the cause of scientific progress by providing opportunities for dedicated young students to engage with ongoing scientific debates, to interact with renowned academics to start developing well-rounded academic interests.

The namesake of Jakobsleiter, the heavenly ladder encapsulates a twofold concept: young minds ascending on the ladder of science, and established scholars descending to and helping those who will one day join them and continue their work.

Jakobsleiter‘s second issue will be published on 20 September 2023. Its theme will be Reconstruction(s).

The submission deadline for authors is 10 March 2023.

Jakobsleiter’s editorial board welcomes submissions related to the theme of Reconstruction(s) from high school students from all scientific disciplines, and particularly encourages interdisciplinary approaches.

In accordance with our commitment to help young minds in their exploration of scholarly paradigms, we organize a sequence of events to support our future authors.

  • Interested students will have the opportunity to submit their chosen topic by 20 November 2022, receiving dedicated one on one feedback from members of the Teaching and Learning Team
  • We will be holding a Publishing workshop focusing on how to put your research into a format fit for publication. The date of the publishing workshop is 15 December 2022

Submissions need to comply with Jakobsleiter’s submission guidelines and arrive to the Editorial Board by 10 March 2023. All submissions arriving before the submission deadline, will be reviewed by experts (peer-review process) and returned to submitters with detailed feedback on the contents and suggestions for improvement.

The best submissions will be asked to resubmit their papers following the peer-review process, and upon editing, they will be printed in the 2023 issue of Jakobsleiter.
