NOTE:  Beginning in the summer of 2016 the Virginia Journal of Science/VJS now offers an online version that can be accessed via the following link.
Authors have the option of submitting their manuscripts directly via that site.  Published articles will appear in both hardcopy and online journal formats.  In some cases, the content of an article may dictate that full presentation of the article requires the online format; for example, we can do full color figures, videos and the like online but not in hardcopy.  In those cases, the hardcopy articles will include links to the online version so that readers can fully access all of the content.
