Portraits of young physicists: Fatema Tanjia, a pursued dream

By Antigone Marino. Published on 15 December 2015 in:

I met Fatema years ago. In our Physics Department we were not used to hosting foreigners, but one day I saw an elegant young woman of oriental descent, dressed in a beautiful sari. I thought immediately we were going to have the chance to exchange about our cultures. Indeed, now, after 5 years, I have a story to tell: the story of a young courageous woman physicist, a great example of cultural integration.

Editorial – Europe and its next-generation scientists

By Antigone Marino. Published on 25 July 2014 in:
Editorial, July 2014, , , ,

Looking around, it is easy to see how many learned societies and nations are trying to do something to promote the next generation of scientists. In the era of digitisation and social networks most of these initiatives are aimed to give to young researchers the opportunity to create their own network of connections.
If we look at the past, the big differences between a scientist of the current generation and one of the eighties can be synthesised in a few points: the digitisation of scientific discoveries in electronic journals and their diffusion through the Internet allow us to read and publish articles in shorter time. Moreover…

Editorial – Community celebration of physics

By Antigone Marino, John Dudley. Published on 26 July 2013 in:
Editorial, July 2013, , ,

Like all areas of modern science, physics today is more and more specialized. Workers in different subfields interact with each other rarely, and it is easy to forget that we form part of a community of scientists studying the one fundamental subject concerned with the nature of matter on all scales.

There is, however, one regular reminder of the importance of physics as a fundamental discipline of science. This…

February 2013, News, , ,

The interaction between the journal Accastampato and European Physical Society Young Minds [EPS YM] is an example of how networking activities promoted by the physical societies can be used to take a project from a local to a national scale.

Accastampato is a journal founded in 2010 by students of the Physics Department of La Sapienza University of Roma. Written by students for students, the journal aims to draw attention to the beauty of science, in a friendly and…
