Research Paper Procedure & Guidelines
Research Paper Due: December 17, 2012
Availability on Presentation Date
Prior to submission of the research paper, each student must make sure that he/she is available to present the work, if selected, on the Symposium date, March 1, 2013. Withdrawals from the Symposium once selected deprive opportunities of other students to present their works. LI-JSHS will only accept withdrawals in case of illness or emergency.
Paper Submission Form & Research Paper
Prior to submitting papers, a school teacher/official must download the School Paper Submission Form. This form is filled out by the school teacher/official. In addition, if a student’s work is performed under the supervision of an outside scientist, the Supervising Scientist Form must be submitted. This form is filled out by the student’s supervisor/mentor. These forms require signatures and must be scanned and emailed, or faxed to LI-JSHS (631-632-8544). If emailed (preferred method), please name the file as described below. These forms will not be accepted if not signed, and the corresponding school or student papers associated will not be reviewed.
To accompany each student’s Research Paper, download the Paper Information Form and fill out the required information. The file must be renamed as described below.
The research paper must be submitted as either an MS Word or PDF file. Name the file as described below. The size of file must be less than 2MB. Submit the paper information form and the research paper files of each student together as attachments to JSHS@stonybrook.edu by the nominating teacher/school official no later than December 17, 2012. A separate email can be sent for each student. Files will not be accepted if sent directly from the student. Note only the Teacher Award Form may be sent by a student to JSHS@stonybrook.edu.

Research Paper Format
Order of Content
While the organization is flexible, each paper must have the title page and acknowledgement of assistances. Note, for instance, research that creates a novel design for a system should spend more time detailing and evaluating design decisions. Overall, clarity and a logical argument should be your overriding goals.
