All JSR articles must be submitted with one or more images for illustration. You can generate these yourself, or you can get them from a specific list of sources. Not all pictures may be used! Click the link to find out what makes a good image and which ones you're permitted to include.
New JSR students complete online worksheets to learn journalism skills. Continuing JSR students submit Publication Review Forms examining differences between submitted and published versions of their work. Click the link to learn about worksheets and review forms.
Every student is part of an editorial group with other students and an editor. Together, you'll work on a group project. Every time you submit an article, your editor will give you notes and advice. Click the link to learn about the groups, our editors, and our expectations for them.
