The Yale Scientific Magazine (YSM) is a scientific magazine published quarterly by undergraduate students from Yale University.[1] It was founded at the Sheffield Scientific School of Yale in 1894.[1] Before 1927, it was originally called Yale Scientific Monthly or Yale Sheffield Monthly.[1] As the first student magazine devoted to the sciences, it is the oldest collegiate science quarterly in the United States.[1]

Over 100 students are involved in various aspects of the magazine, including writing, editorial, production, art, multimedia, website, and business. It currently has more than 2,000 subscribers around the world. Article topics covered by Yale Scientific Magazine include disciplines in science, mathematics, and engineering, at Yale and beyond. The magazine presents and promotes achievements, knowledge, and activities in the sciences, medicine, and engineering at the University.


Synapse is the outreach team of YSM. Synapse regularly hosts competitions, conferences and events that are usually targeted at children and teenagers, to cultivate and support interest in science and journalism.[2]

The Scope[edit]

In 2015, YSM launched its blog page, The Scope, which aims to present topics and breakthroughs in science in a simpler, more interesting, and more personal manner.[3]
