Our Mission

What Is The Student Journal?

A platform for students to publish their work and achievements in various formats related to their studies, such as essays, posters, and videos.

Why Should You Send In Submissions?

Gain recognition and spotlight for your achievements, receive valuable experience in the publishing process, inspire others with your unique perspective and accomplishments and contribute to a student-driven platform that promotes student work.

What Is The Mission Of Our Student Journal?

We’re on a mission to create a low-stakes environment where students can dive into the exciting world of publishing and share their incredible work. We’re here to make sure that their creations don’t go to waste.

In that context, we also seek to promote freedom of science by fostering independence in research, promoting the principles of open science for greater accessibility and transparency, and facilitating effective science communication to bridge the gap between academia and the wider community.

What Is New?

While most people fall prey to the tricks of their own minds, those with a unique neurology have a superpower! 🦸🏽

Autistic people dodge cognitive biases like the Attraction Effect, helping them make even smarter choices than neurotypicals. And this is just one of their many powers.

✨ Ever wondered how the word `racism` made its way into the dictionary? Let`s take a fascinating journey through time! 🔍

Back in the late 1930s, the term `racism` caught the attention of lexicographers at Merriam-Webster. It was a time when racial tensions were escalating, especially in Nazi Germany. The word primarily referred to the Nazi assumption of racial superiority and anti-Semitism. 😮

But as the years passed and racial injustices became more apparent in America, the definition evolved. 💬 The post-war era brought awareness to discrimination against Black people and marginalized groups. Merriam-Webster recognized the need to broaden the definition, acknowledging the assumption of racial superiority and discrimination against other races. 👥

Fast forward to recent times, when a young Black activist named Kennedy Mitchum contacted Merriam-Webster with concerns about their definition of `racism.` She felt it didn`t capture the systemic nature of racial oppression. 🤔

The dictionary`s response? A revision that better highlights the systemic oppression of a racial group to the social, economic, and political advantage of another — specifically, white supremacy. The entry now includes illuminating quotations from influential writers and activists. 📝

This fascinating linguistic journey reminds us that definitions are not set in stone. Language evolves alongside our understanding of social issues. It`s a powerful example of how words reflect and shape our changing world. 🌍

Stay tuned and stay curious for more fun facts from us! 🌈
