Undergraduate projects published in Plymouth Student Scientist

The Plymouth Student Scientist e-journal seeks to make the research process more accessible and explicit, by highlighting examples of good practice from across the University of Plymouth STEM disciplines. To encourage students to become more reflective and critical of their own research skills, they should consider the work of their peers with this aim in mind. The minimum criterion for publication in the journal is a first class honours project mark. All the journal articles are presented, largely, in their original state (Stage 4 dissertation) complete with imperfections.
