Dear Scientifica Advertiser,
Whether it is the latest technology advances in capturing circulating tumor cells (CTC), developing a possible parasitic vaccine, or discovering water particles on Mars, science is an ever-evolving discipline that captures the intellectually curious. As the first undergraduate scientific magazine at the University of Miami, our mission is to spark the passion, curiosity, and innovation in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in students of all disciplines. With a circulation of 2,015 copies to our university’s three campuses — Coral Gables, RSMAS, and Miller Medical School — placing an advertisement in our magazine presents your business with invaluable exposure to undergraduates, graduate students, healthcare professionals, researchers, and alumni. Students, faculty, and researchers look forward to each new issue (two per semester) and Scientifica delivers. With an economic impact of $6.1 billion on the tri-county (Miami Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach) region, a direct $1.4 billion spent in Coral Gables, and $2.7 billion spent in the city of Miami, the University of Miami stands as a solid economic constant in the South Florida community. Scientifica will provide you with a direct outlet to these potential consumers. Currently, Scientifica is composed of 55 students from over 15 different majors from the College of Arts and Science, College of Education, College of Architecture, School of Business, and the School of Communications. The students are advised by a group of 17 faculty members who comprise our magazine’s board of faculty advisors. Since we started our magazine in the fall of 2014, our undergraduate students have created mathematical models likening naturally occurring structures to fractals, participated in an informative investigation of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and the charity’s budget allocation, covered the launch of the Nanofabrication facility at Miller School of Medicine, and analyzed the Ebola epidemic spread. Volume I, Issue I of the first undergraduate scientific magazine at the University of Miami contained works ranging from freshman advice on how to balance eating, sleeping, and maintaining grades to the ethics of treating livestock with antibiotics (a practice that may ultimately prove harmful to humans as well). This magazine is the result of the hard work of some of UM’s brightest minds. That being said, I hope you take a look at this year’s media kit to learn about the advertising opportunities Scientifica offers. We hope you become part of this successful team and we look forward to working with you!
