Mission Statement

Mission Statement:

Interdisciplinarity is key to a well-rounded scholar. The exchange of ideas, tools and methodologies across fields facilitates a scholar’s growth beyond the bounds of their singular area of expertise, allowing room for creativity and inspiration to flourish. As a result, the Jefferson Journal of Science and Culture was founded on the belief that the cross-pollination of various disciplines is a crucial factor for innovation, creativity, and the advancement of scholarship. To facilitate such an exchange, this annual journal is dedicated to publishing articles from a multitude of domains that employ interdisciplinary approaches or teams, all concentrated around a central topic of interest for each issue. In this way, the particular topic may be viewed in a fresh light, promoting new perspectives and the broadening of one’s intellect. “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but in seeing with new eyes.” – Marcel Proust


The Jefferson Journal of Science and Culture is completely created, edited and maintained by Jefferson Fellows.
