On March 21st, the Hampden-Sydney College Journal of the Sciences was officially launched. The announcement was made by Dr. Michael Wolyniak, Assistant Professor of Biology. The Journal is a student-edited showcase of the wide variety of undergraduate research activity performed at Hampden-Sydney.
Submissions come from students in all of the scientific disciplines, including biology, chemistry, mathematics and computer science, physics and astronomy, and psychology. The submissions range from Honors theses to classroom research assignments and are edited by the student editorial board into a professional format. The board below; left to right: Osric Forrest '12, Yonathan Ararso '13, John Bishop '13, Dr. Wolyniak, and Ke Shang '13. The student editorial board has quite an international component. John Bishop is from Alabama, USA, but Osric is from Jamaica, Yonathan from Ethiopia, and Ke from China.
The results are then presented at http://sciencejournal.hsc.edu.
The Journal provides an outstanding opportunity for Hampden-Sydney students to get involved in an authentic scientific research and publication process and to gain invaluable experiences that will help them in the pursuit of graduate or professional education after their time at H-SC.
