About the section
The Natural Sciences is a broad board that encompasses various disciplines, from the biological sciences to the theoretical realm of fields like physics and mathematics. While the board contains a diverse array of topics, a shared commonality among the works is the overarching use of the scientific method. The scientific method is a guiding process, which all authors use to organize a methodology to investigate a question of interest and be able to support it with carefully examined data. Past submissions include full-length manuscripts ranging from topics like the biogeochemistry of a freshwater lake to construction of generalized integral formulas. Research snapshot submissions have contained a breadth of topics from bacterial endosymbiotic relationships to a bioinformatics analysis of RNA expression in plant development. The Natural Sciences covers a medley of topics that overall encourages us to actively inspect and understand the complex dynamical systems that exist in the universe.
