On Tuesday, March 26, the Hampden-Sydney College Journal of the Sciences celebrated the release of its second volume. A reception was held in the Cabell Room of Bortz Library where students and faculty joined the editorial board in commemorating the event.
The chief editors of the Journal, Yonathan Ararso '13, John Bishop '13, and Ke Shang '13, opened the event by thanking the entire editorial staff (Burke Best '13, John Dekarske '14, Alan Fish '14, William Hudson '14, and David Williams '14), the students who submitted their work for publication, and faculty advisor Dr. Michael Wolyniak, Assistant Professor of Biology, for all their hard work.
A student-edited online publication, the first volume of the Journal was launched in March 2012 to showcase the wide variety of undergraduate research activity in the Natural Sciences and Mathematics undertaken at Hampden-Sydney. In addition to research articles from all the scientific disciplines including biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, physics, and psychology, the second volume also featured essays on medical ethics and departmental update reports with new faculty profiles.
The Journal continues to provide a venue for the public presentation of undergraduate research performed at the College, and also offers an outstanding opportunity for Hampden-Sydney students to get involved in an authentic scientific research and publication process.
