    Regrettably, there will be no NWSA Student Research Grant competition in 2024. In previous years, the NWSA has awarded up to $750/$1500 per student in support of promising research proposals at the undergraduate/graduate levels. After a turbulent financial year, the Association will be pausing the Student Research Grant for 2024. The was a difficult decision to take, and we very much hope to resume the award in 2025.

    Exciting changes are afoot in the submission and publication process at Northwest Science, the journal of the Northwest Scientific Association. As part of these changes, the editorial team recently completed work on revisions to the author guidance.

    The new author guidance improves clarity, streamlines the manuscript submission process, and provides new preprint options for authors of accepted articles. In addition to a revised guidance manual, new guidance documents include:

    • A guide for references
    • An optional Word template for manuscript development
    • Submission of article key points to improve visibility in literature searches
    • A new citation style language (csl) file

    If you have visited our Accepted Articles and Notes webpage in recent months, you may have noticed the addition of links to preprint versions of accepted articles that are in the publication pipeline, as well as figures that offer a preview of the content of accepted articles. These preprint options are a new feature of the Northwest Science publication process, available to all authors, and are a great way to get study findings out into the world before the formal publication process has been completed.

    With these changes, submission of articles to Northwest Science is simpler and more attractive than ever. So, if Thanksgiving break leaves you with more free time than you know how to fill, our editorial team has provided even more reason to channel your creativity into a Northwest Science manuscript!

    Northwest Science will soon be accepting Open Access submissions!

    Open Access publication is well-suited to the Northwest Science audience, which includes amateur and applied scientists working outside traditional research institutions, for whom fee-based journal articles may be challenging to access. Licensing options for Open Access submission in Northwest Science are currently under consideration and will soon be available through the journal's electronic submission management portal. The fee for Open Access submission will be $2,500, but standard page fees (currently $65 and $80 per page for members and non-members, respectively) will be waived.

    Authors currently in the review/revision process and interested in Open Access publication should make this preference known following acceptance of submitted manuscripts, if this occurs before the electronic submission portal has been modified to allow Open Access option.

    The Northwest Science Editorial Board looks forward to receiving your Open Access submissions!
