Young Scientist is an interdisciplinary research journal published by Vanderbilt, highlighting research conducted by high school students in Vanderbilt laboratories. The journal will host twenty research articles annually. The articles will be no more than three pages in length including a maximum of three figures while supplementary material will be made available at an online website. We therefore expect the burden for reviewers to be limited. As the manuscript must be understandable to the educated public, it is acceptable and even encouraged if the reviewer is outside of the primary field of research discussed in the manuscript.

Implicit bias, in its simplest form, describes prejudicial judgment that affects social behavior. Despite its relatively unconscious nature, it is still possible to identify specific attitudes that reflect our predispositions toward socially marginalized groups. In this workshop, we will discuss the ways in which implicit bias, when left unchecked, can adversely affect our teaching and the outcomes of student assessments. Participants will collaborate with one another to formulate best practices for detecting implicit bias and adopting fair assessment measures.
