The ASRJ is a student-led initiative intended to facilitate knowledge translation, and to develop the student-scientist network. Through the use of an online platform, we provide interesting and interactive articles featuring local science and its real-life applications. Using social media and campus events, we increase the awareness of the research being done by students and faculty at our Universities. Additionally, the ASRJ provides services to students, to connect them to research and engage them in their community. By connecting students across New Brunswick, we can grow research in the province and inspire students to investigate the problems of the modern world. The Atlantic Student Research Journal (ASRJ) believes in improving lives through education, inspiration and by supporting local research that encourages future scientists. Our goal is to both educate and inspire students, the public and other researchers and advocate for local research that is being done in order to create a better, more knowledgeable and advanced world.
