The Catalyst, founded summer of 2021, is an inclusive, open access paper series at UCSD which aims to empower the voices of students who have a passion for conducting research. We welcome any and all students who are interested in publishing their work, and we are dedicated to fostering a diverse community of interdisciplinary scholarship. Through this journal, we:
Emphasize helping new students find their path in research, and aim to help publish new (and especially underrepresented) scholars.
Do not discriminate based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender, disability, age, medical condition, ancestry, marital status, citizenship, or sexual orientation.
Are an academic organization connected to UC San Diego Undergraduate Research Hub.
This journal was founded with the intention of supporting those who are passionate about their studies. We encourage any student interested in research to get involved. Seriously. We understand that innovation comes in many different forms.
Whether a scholar is distinguished in their field or is brand new to research, we are here to help them grow.
Whether a scholar is publishing a paper on neuroscience or an arrangement of artistic works (or anything in between), we are here to feature and celebrate their work.
