Journal of Science
Parkside Journal of Science aims to be the premier undergraduate research journal compiling all the research being conducted at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.
Each semester, the PJS team of students will publish independently conducted research done by students of UW-Parkside, review current scientific articles, interview faculty members pertaining to their work, and address present issues in the scientific community.
The motive behind the Parkside Journal of Science (PJS) is to shed light on the projects of UW-Parkside students and present them to a wider audience in an effort to inspire creative inquiry amongst the student body. Furthermore, we intend to build a community centered on scientific collaboration. PJS will be the vehicle driving an open forum for scientifically curious individuals.
The scope of this platform is comprehensive, stretching across multifarious disciplines such as biology, physics, chemistry, psychology, computer science, sociology, anthropology, geoscience, and mathematics. While the bulk of our published material is related to the UW-Parkside campus, it is not solely confined to Wisconsin territory. A great deal of students travel abroad on trips, and our faculty routinely conduct projects in foreign lands with implications spanning the globe.
Our mission is to ignite scientific curiosity amongst the Parkside community and beyond!

We are very pleased to bring you another edition of the premier undergraduate research journal at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. Biannually, the Parkside Journal of Science releases publications containing detailed interviews with eminent UW-Parkside faculty, undergraduate student spotlights from the College of Natural and Health and Sciences, and featured articles spanning myriad scientific disciplines.
In this edition, we chose to dissect multiple genres of scientific inquiry with particular attention paid to the biological systems. Our writers were captivated by some of the discoveries shaping the modern world. As revolutionary findings are continuously made, Parkside Journal of Science recognizes its immense duty in helping to distill some of this dialogue by bringing attention to it. Scientific journalism lies at the nexus between innovation and public understanding. Thus we strive towards providing accurate, trustworthy and ever-encompassing reporting through our work. In short, we are truly proud to highlight this semester’s issue of the Parkside Journal of Science.
We now invite you to take part in the exploration of the diverse ways that research at UW-Parkside and beyond has had a massive impact in just the last year. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to read this issue and GO RANGERS!
