Communication and Science Journal Interim Editing

Communication and Science Journal Logo.

Limited-time mentor-led opportunity to grow your skills in social scientific measurement skills toward publication is now available!

Project description

As part of our commitment to offering undergraduates broader scope of experiences in primary research, this mentorship opportunity offers our Singapore campus students a unique opportunity to be part of the growing volunteer staff of an existing scientific journal. Initial appointments are available for students in the local Asian branch of UB only. Currently the Interim Staff members are redesigning our webpage to include an interactive portal for submission, review, and publication of social scientific student papers focused on empirical, data-driven scientific measurement based in metric models derived from the physical sciences.

Project outcome

Establishment and maintenance of a student publications portal within an existing online scientific journal website.
