Pioneer Academics is pleased to announce that the 2019 edition of The Pioneer Research Journal has arrived! The publication of this edition, which is the Sixth Volume, was significantly delayed by the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite that setback, the outstanding scholarship found in its pages will stand as a testament to the academic excellence of the authors whose work was selected after undergoing the rigorous review required to earn publication in this international collection of undergraduate-level research.
Published annually, The Pioneer Research Journal showcases the most outstanding original research conducted by high school students under the auspices of Pioneer’s rigorous academic system and guided by the mentorship of world class university professors. To be selected for publication, each nominated paper had to pass a double-blind anonymous review by one of 41 college or university faculty on our multi-disciplinary panel, in addition to being reviewed by the authors’ high school teachers and counselors. Once the review process was complete, only 4% of the research papers generated in the Pioneer Research Program during the 2019 academic year were selected for publication in the 2019 edition of the Pioneer Research Journal.
This edition features ambitious work that delves into complex questions across a wide range of academic disciplines including philosophy, engineering, biology, and art history, to name just a few. Each individual paper demonstrates the depth that defines academic research of the highest caliber while collectively attesting to what even the youngest scholars can achieve when given access to tools that can unlock their potential and push themselves beyond their perceived limits.
We are thrilled to share this exemplary scholarship and are confident that you will find it enlightening and inspiring. Volume Six of The Pioneer Research Journal can be viewed on the Pioneer Academics website at www.pioneeracademics.com/journals/.
