Share your experience about doing research as an undergraduate!
We are inviting current and former students to share their experiences as undergraduate researchers. We are seeking short (~200 words), first-person “Vignettes” to include in our forthcoming book, Success in Navigating Your Student Research Experience, which will be published in 2022 by Springer as part of their SpringerBriefs in Education series. The book is focused on undergraduate research experiences (including internships) in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM). Topics covered in the book include: finding and applying for a research experience; success in overcoming challenges in the research experience itself; and opportunities to continue research afterwards.
For details on submission, publication, and compensation, and to submit your vignette, click on this link to the Google Form.
- Diversity among ecologists?Ecology is one of the least diverse fields in STEM. A recent set of papers, including one of our own, highlights challenges and solutions for recruiting and retaining diverse people into ecology.
- Posters: The Better Choice?Posters are typically seen as a lesser choice for presenting at meetings and conferences. They are often considered less interesting or compelling than oral talks, a consolation prize, or simply a waste of time, effort, and resources. But why?
- Calling All Presenters“The science speaks for itself”. How many times have we heard this? While the sentiment is true, the messenger plays a key role in getting the message across. Effectively presenting our research at conferences and meetings is how “we speak for the science” and ourselves.
