Online Journal for Undergraduate Research in the Marine and Aquatic Sciences

Welcome to the MarSci website! Now, with only a single click, our entire issue can be downloaded and shared. This issue is a step toward our goals of being more professional, having more content, and increasing the diversity of contributions. We also hope to increase student involvement, particularly from other universities.

Future issues will feature research manuscripts, posters and abstracts, student articles, words of advice from faculty members, and upcoming deadlines and events (REU programs and student-friendly conferences). This format encourages the submission of any undergraduate researching in the fields of marine and aquatic sciences. Students can submit work from completed projects and works-in-progress in any form listed. It will be more widely distributed for students to share their experiences.

The mission of MarSci is to:

      1. provide a first-time publication experience for undergraduates
      2. introduce undergraduates to the world of scientific journalism
      3. inform interested students of potential research opportunities 


We hope that this improved version of MarSci encourages students to submit their work.
