Volume II Now Available

Volume II Launch March 22nd 2016

Please join us in the Dining hall, TCD, for the Launch of Volume II at 6pm.

The Trinity Student Scientific Review is a student-run annual publication that provides an opportunity for undergraduates to be published and gain recognition for exceptional academic work among their peers and departments in Trinity College Dublin. A scientific review analyses and discusses the literature and current understanding surrounding a particular topic. To be able to critically analyse research is a vital skill of a working scientist, and Trinity’s science undergraduates have a chance to develop and showcase these skills in the TSSR.

Students who write for us learn how to approach and engage with scientific literature and formal scientific writing, and get the chance to probe areas for further study, such as scholarship exams preparation, final year projects, and postgraduate research.
