Undergradu​ate Journal Seeks Submission​s and Staff!

 My name is Rachel Bietz and I am the Director of Public Relations for the Journal of Young Investigators (JYI), writing to notify your students of opportunities to expand their experience with our international non-profit organization. Originally funded by the National Science Foundation, JYI is an independent, peer-reviewed, online science journal that is managed entirely by and for undergraduate students from across the world. We have exciting opportunities in many of our departments that would allow students to explore careers in science journalism, scientific editing and publishing, public relations and marketing and web development, while contributing to a growing organization that supports the work of other undergraduate students. We believe that by doing meaningful work in their field of interest, students will generate skills and develop practical knowledge that will reinforce the work they are doing in the classroom.
We ask that you please forward the following message to your department or school’s listserv, and that you share this opportunity with students who might be interested. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions at dpr@jyi.org.

Thank you very much for your consideration,
