The Horizon Academic Research Journal showcases a sampling of the high quality work produced by high school students in the The Horizon Academic Research Program. This journal issue represents diversity and excellence of our students from the 2020-2021 academic year. Students from 34 countries, from our own zip code in New Jersey, to as far away as Romania, India, Bangladesh, and China, worked with researchers from 9 universities to produce scholarship on topics ranging from Bioinformatics to International Relations. By conducting the program online, we were able to cross physical boundaries that would have otherwise made such work impossible. The full text of this volume is accessible here.

Out of more than 3,000 applicants to our program, 493 students were admitted and enrolled into our program from summer 2020 through summer 2021. These students worked either individually or in small groups with researchers, with the goal of producing an impactful research project. Some students produced original research, while others filled gaps in the current literature using knowledge gained over the course of their time at Horizon Academic. Of these students, 28 were selected to publish their work in this issue. 

We are pleased to make this Volume available to the public and hope that this provides a window, not only into the skill and ability of each author, but also into the abilities of high school students to do meaningful research without the use of physical lab spaces. It is our pleasure and honor to share this work with you.
