About this Journal

Synthesis (ISSN 2643-8410 (online)) publishes student science communication writ large. Many of the works we publish document community engagement projects that bring science to the public. Others describe student researcher's 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, the Digital Scholarship and Publishing Studio, and Iowa Digital Engagement and Learning.
