dc.description The New Journal of Student Research Abstracts is published yearly in the fall by Van Nuys Airport. Continued publication is always dependent on funding. The journal is intended to serve as (1) a vehicle to honor young investigators and their teachers by showcasing their work, motivating them to continue their involvement in research science; (2) a sourcebook for both students and teachers who are looking for ideas for research projects, particularly in the areas of aviation and aerospace; and (3) a volume to disseminate student research discoveries. Many abstracts included in the journal demonstrate good science, i.e. clear introductions describing a hypothesis to be tested, appropriate methods and data analysis, results and conclusion statements, and - most important - sufficient numbers of appropriate control and experimental samples and repetitions of experiments. Some are idea abstracts, and some are abstracts of library or Internet research projects. Although the journal editor deletes very poor abstracts from the publication, some abstracts herein are quite flawed, and some lack at least one component of a good science experiment. Including some of these abstracts helps make this journal very useful for classes to learn what makes for a good experiment and for a good abstract vs. a not-so-good experiment and a not-so-good abstract. Some of the abstracts are experimental plans instead of completed projects. This is especially true in the case of long-term, sophisticated research programs that require extensive setup and planning. The journal encourages abstracts on the planning and progress of such projects. The journal editor continues to reserve the right not to publish those abstracts that are seriously flawed. The journal does not notify authors if their abstracts have been deleted. Any opinions, findings and conclusions or recommendations are those of the individual authors of the abstracts presented in the journal, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Van Nuys Airport, California State University, Northridge, other contributing organizations and individuals, or the journal staff. en
