The journal of IAPS, jIAPS, is the annual publication of the International Association of Physics Students. It contains scientific articles, event reports from our member committees and any news of interest to our members. Some articles will be chosen based on our annual article contest, which is open to all and are judged on the ability to communicate. The journal is organised and run by an editor, namely a physics student who wants to volunteer and make jIAPS the great publication it has always been!
The editor’s job will be to coordinate with the PR manager and other volunteers to assemble the 2020 edition. This will include incorporating the results of the article contest, creating graphics, general typesetting and pulling it all together! It also includes promoting jIAPS through its social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) and also maintaining its website.
The 2020 Editor team:
Sophie Abrahams, Lead Editor of jIAPS
I study natural sciences at the University of York, UK, where I am specialising in physics. I am most passionate about astrophysics and my favourite moon is Enceladus. When I am not at university I enjoy swing dancing and music, and dabble in growing succulents. I aspire to work in science communications and make physics even more accessible to the public.
Aditya Sengupta, Co-Editor of jIAPS
I am a physics major currently pursuing my bachelor’s at Amity University, Noida, in India. My interest is mainly in experimental physics and also in the study of dynamical systems. I love classical music, abstract art, and chess. My idol and inspiration is Richard Feynman and I aim to contribute to science and make the world a better place.
Subhash Sharma, Co-Editor of jIAPS
I have a master’s degree in physics from Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu, Nepal, and am looking to enroll in a PhD program. Besides my academic degree, I aspire to build scientific communities for the betterment of society. I am working towards this goal by involvement in the development of scientific events and outreach programs. I am motivated to work with scientific thinkers around the world for the good of mankind.
The call for the jIAPS Editors for 2021 edition will open in autumn 2020.
