THE PUBLICATION


Catalyst, the Undergraduate Science Research Journal at Rice, showcases student perspectives on popular science topics and undergraduate research. We’re committed to fostering interdisciplinary interest in scientific writing and dialogue about science at Rice. We invest in our writers to represent our organization, our university, and the power of writing in this context to educate and engage a broad audience.

Science needs to be accessible and engaging to captivate and inform a wider American public that is often inundated with misinformation, junk news, and conflicting opinions on key issues. We are passionate about making science accessible and engaging, whether you’re a Ph.D. research scientist or a casual reader hoping to learn a little bit about virtual reality.

Off campus, we have taken a huge step forward by co-founding the International Collegiate Science Journal (ICSJ), a collaboration with sister organizations at Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, UC Berkeley, Duke, Washington University in St. Louis, Cambridge, and Oxford. In the process, Catalyst has emerged as a real leader in design and publication standards within ICSJ, and we’ve learned a lot from our peers around the country and abroad.

Check out a few highlights from Discoveries, our frequently updated online blog, on our home page. And while you’re at it, please take a second to follow Rice Catalyst on Facebook and Twitter!

About eureka

Catalyst is an organization that ultimately seeks to increase scientific literacy through the publication opportunities it offers. Previously, these opportunities were offered only to undergraduates within the Rice University community. In an effort to expand its reach and serve the greater Houston community, Catalyst went beyond the hedges. 

Starting in the fall of the 2016 academic year, Catalyst implemented a program called Eureka! in partnership with nearby high school institutions to guide high school students through the process of writing scientific articles similar to those found in the annual Catalyst publication, which are then compiled into a separate publication and distributed at the end of the academic year. By providing this opportunity, Catalyst members hope to not only provide high school students with an exciting glimpse of the scientific sphere of the academic world, but also serve as mentors to younger students in areas such as college applications, college life, and career options. 

The inaugural issue of Eureka was published in April of 2017.
