As you may have noticed, ScIU took a period of hiatus over the summer. It was a tough decision since, without missing a single week, ScIU has published a weekly blog post about science and the humans involved in scientific endeavors since the blog’s formation in 2016. At this point, ScIU has published more than 300 posts by IU graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and undergraduate students from all different fields, from geology to physics, from psychology to chemistry, from ecology to linguistics. In its lifetime, ScIU has received more than 300,000 unique pageviews from tens of thousands of users. The site has received at least one visitor from almost every country in the world. Many of our alumni have gone on to successful careers in science communication, industry, and academia.
Over the summer, ScIU was undergoing structural changes as many of the blog’s staff recently graduated (congrats!). We’re happy to announce that we now have the infrastructure to continue publishing posts, and plan to continue to provide you with scientific content at least every other week.
We are actively recruiting more writers, editors, and staff. If you’re a graduate student at IU and would like to get involved with ScIU, please contact us here. We look forward to continuing to share science with you again and appreciate your continued support!
