The Journal of Stories in Science

Launched in 2016, the Journal of Stories in Science is a publishing platform and citizen science project managed by the Boston-based STEM Advocacy Institute. Among its goals, this unique project aims "to understand people's connections and journeys in science [and] to publish inspiring and thought-provoking stories in science from around the world." On the main page, visitors can scroll down to see the project's most recently published stories, as well as examples from North America, South America, Africa, Europe, and Asia. As of this write-up, the Stories in Science Project has published more than 160 accounts from contributors worldwide. In addition to browsing the stories from the main page, visitors can also use the Search page to filter the collection by fields such as gender, career stage, location, type of science, and more. This database of diverse stories may be of particular interest to STEM educators in search of authentic stories to offer their students about real people in science, the challenges they've encountered, and how they overcame those challenges. For those interested in writing about their own science story, the Submit page provides detailed guidelines and helpful advice.
