ASU professors have initiated a new peer-reviewed journal, "Frontiers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (FSTEM)," which will be used to publish manuscripts from the participants of the annual Research Symposium.

This year’s Annual Research Symposium at Alabama State University was so successful and informative that ASU professors decided to create a new peer-reviewed journal titled Frontiers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (FSTEM) to publish the manuscripts.

The purpose of FSTEM is to:

Publish the innovative research in STEM fields, including chemistry, computer and information technology science, engineering, geosciences, life sciences, mathematical sciences, physics and astronomy, social sciences (anthropology, economics, psychology and sociology), and STEM education and learning research;
Inspire and encourage undergraduates and graduates to work and remain in STEM fields;
Publicize the research results from the outstanding presentations of the Annual Research Symposia at Universities and Colleges in the United States and other countries; and
Facilitate the communication and collaboration among the participants of these Symposia. The journal will promote the communication and enhance the collaborative opportunity among the participants of the symposium by presenting the research papers and review articles.

The targeted audience of FSTEM include undergraduates, M.S. students, Ph.D. students, post doctoral students, scientists, professors and others who are interested in STEM research. The manuscript authors of FSTEM are anticipated to be undergraduates, graduates, scientists and professors.

Seventy-six abstracts (31 talks and 45 posters) were presented by 38 research groups in the symposium.  The authors of the presentations are from 21 institutions in nine states (Connecticut, Texas, Michigan, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, New York, and Alabama) and two other countries (United Kingdom and Cameroon).

Additional manuscripts, which were not presented in the Annual Research Symposium, may also be published.

The editorial board of FSTEM will consist of the world leaders and active scientists in STEM disciplines from seven countries including Canada, China, France, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States.

There is no publication fee for the accepted manuscripts. FSTEM will initially be published yearly, but may change to monthly as the submission of manuscripts increases.

The inaugural issue includes seven manuscripts and is now available.
