About The Research Paper


Vision Statement
Our vision for The Research Paper is to create a magazine that humanizes research on all levels. We believe that research is as much about self-discovery as it is about achievement. In addition to showing the outstanding research that is done here at Cornell, we aim to show the uniqueness, creativity, and personality of each researcher to our readers. We do this by focusing our articles on who the researcher is, what they are involved in at Cornell and in their communities, and what their future aspirations are.

History
The club was founded by Emily Posner in 2000. The purpose, aims, and functions of this organization are:
to promote research at Cornell University
to reward students and faculty for doing great research
to show students the process of research and encourage them to do so
to show that research is conducted in every single college and every discipline at Cornell
to bring the Cornell community together (administration, faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students, alumni, prospective students)
to provide a resource of opportunities for students to get involved
to feature undergraduate researchers in all of the seven colleges
to bring together student leaders and enthusiasts who have a passion for research and fulfilling their curiosities
to reap the benefits of publishing a magazine and spreading the word of the positive effects of research

Annual Spring Release Party
Each April, the staff welcomes members of the community, including the Cornell administrators and the press, to the annual Spring Release Party. Researchers profiled in the fall and spring issues are invited to create displays of their work and discuss their projects with guests. With musical performances, giveaways, and plenty of food, everyone always has a wonderful time.

Description

The Research Paper (TRP) is an open-access student-run publication that features undergraduate researchers here at Cornell University; it features profiles of student researchers from across the Cornell campus. Published twice a year, The Research Paper highlights how Cornell students extend their academic interests beyond the classroom. Our magazine is designed to appeal to those with an interest in undergraduate research, from students and teachers through to scientists, administrators, and the community. Since 2000, we have been promoting topical stories from all areas of research at Cornell University. The magazine presents highlights from the school's current and ever-changing research environment, providing not only an insight into Cornell's laboratories but also presenting the unique people behind the research. Interviews with undergraduate researchers, attractive photo spreads, and clean layouts make the magazine a fascinating and valuable read. The overarching vision of The Research Paper is to provide student researchers with a platform to humanize their research and to broadcast it to a general readership.
