IJHSR does not wish to have our fees prevent any student from publishing their work. Please contact [email protected] directly if you have other circumstances that may qualify you for a publication scholarship. For any publication fee scholarship, please contact the editor with free/reduced lunch documentation or detailing your circumstances, once your paper is accepted for publication.
It also provides a platform for students all around the world to see what their peers achieve scientifically while at high school.
A publication is a higher level of presentation and requires higher level of detail and work compared to poster presentation at a science fair, therefore it is more highly valued when compared to a poster or oral presentation.
