To learn more, come to the Synthesis Journal Forum on April 18 from 5:30 - 7:00 in Van Allen Hall, room #56 (LR2).

Synthesis (ISSN 2643-8410 (online)) publishes content related to student science communication. Many of the works we publish document community engagement projects that bring science to the public. Others describe student researchers’ own scientific work. All works represent students' efforts to experiment with science communication in order to reach audiences beyond the scientific community. The journal is published by the University of Iowa as a joint effort of the Latham Science Engagement Initiative and the Digital Scholarship and Publishing Studio.
