Synthesis

How would you like to be published in the nation's ONLY undergraduate journal in the history of science?

In the spring of 2009, undergraduates in the History and Science concentration launched a new journal called Synthesis dedicated to publishing undergraduate scholarship -- worldwide -- in history of science and its allied disciplines.  If you would like to get involved, please email harvardsynthesis@gmail.com.

Submit to Synthesis!

As the only national undergraduate history of science journal in the country, Synthesis receives submissions from students in universities across the country. And...you don't even have to be a History of Science concentrator to submit; we welcome pieces from all subjects, from philosophy, to history, to ethics. Don't miss your chance to be published in the fifth edition of Synthesis, published in the spring!

And... do you want to be involved? There are plenty of opportunities to join our Executive Board.  If you're interested in taking part in editing this year's journal, please fill out this GOOGLE FORM.

We are so excited to read your writing! So, dig out those papers and submit, submit, SUBMIT!
