Please consider that this journal can also provide a wonderful opportunity for your students. Many research projects, especially at the Master's level, do not generate sufficient information of sufficient impact to be published in a national journal or the nature of the research is very local in focus. Too many of these projects end up in filing cabinets never to be seen, but the information that was generated might certainly be of use to somebody. One of the prime starting points in searching for research that is of a local or regional nature is the state academy journals. This journal is peer reviewed, which provides an excellent opportunity for young scientists seeking their first publication. They are introduced to the peer review system and can get a publication for the curriculum vitae.
The Journal of the Mississippi Academy of Sciences is published quarterly. The January issue is reserved for abstracts for the annual meeting; the other three issues (April, July, and October) carry research articles. While you in your students are busily assembling abstracts, please consider going the extra distance and writing up that research for submission to this journal. Instructions for contributors are found on the inside back cover of any issue.--Ken Curry
