Synthesis Header

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.  

Now Synthesis is the History of Science department's newly restored online journal.  We are still the only undergraduate history of science journal out there! Our editorial staff consists of over 15 History and Science undergraduate concentrators and we are entirely student-led, under the supervision of the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Prof. Anne Harrington. We have created a new website, comprised of student papers, interviews with faculty, reviews of the latest hot topics in the history of science, and much more!!!

We are accepting submissions on a rolling basis and would love to hear from students in all disciplines who have written essays with relevance to understanding the history of science, medicine, or technology in society. To submit a research paper or project for the Fall 2021 issue please fill out our submission form.

PLEASE NOTE: The journal is currently not accepting submissions. Please check back in January 2023. 

If you have any questions or comments, or would like to get involved, please email the editors at
