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. Just from this year’s publication, you can find a review on the science of Ebola transmission, an article on recycled water in the American West, and a research paper exploring the mechanics of the CRISPR/Cas9 system. 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!
