About New Horizons


Authors must be cadets enrolled at VMI during the academic year prior to the manuscript submission deadline. Actual publication may follow a cadet's graduation. New Horizons only publishes articles written solely by VMI cadets. Joint student/faculty authorship is not permitted.   

Faculty Mentors 

Cadet authors must choose a faculty mentor to evaluate their projects and written reports. Faculty mentors confirm each submission's originality, technical competence, scholarship, and clarity of presentation. Cadet authors will acknowledge help received from faculty or other individuals at the article's end.
