Latin for "knowledge," Scientia is a completely student-run, predominantly rolling-submissions online publication with an annual copy in print. Scientia's goals are threefold:

  1. Recognize and encourage high-quality undergraduate research.
  2. Provide a forum through which students can gain the essential skills of writing and reviewing to fulfill their future goals.
  3. Contribute to the advancement and cohesiveness of Notre Dame's scientific community.

Scientia is supported by the College of Science, the Notre Dame Journal of Formal Logic, and the Balfour Program.
