International Scholastic Journal of Science

Volume 13, Issue 1, January-December, 2019

From the Editor


Dear Readers,

January. We start our 14th volume of the International Scholastic Journal of Science with a paper of interest to sports enthusiasts around the world: an investigation into how foot velocity affects the velocity of a football (soccer to North Americans). This paper adds to our extensive collection of papers investigating various aspects of the physics of sports which have not been fully investigated.

August. We at ISJOS have been busy during our COVID-enforced isolation. A number of students have taken advantage of the extra time on their hands to work on refining their research and writing a paper on it. We have published three papers over the past months: two looking at the characteristics of various fruit, and one looking at the sound characteristics of a chinese porcelain Jingdezhen Bowl.

We at ISJOS hope that the papers in our journal continue to inspire secondary students around the world to dream of publishing their own original research and making a contribution to our scientific understanding of a small corner of our world. We encourage students to submit their original, entry-level research to the ISJOS for review.
