Modern Poultry has introduced “Rising Stars,” a new editorial section featuring work, insights and opinions from graduate research assistants focused on poultry science.
“We’ve always been impressed by the raw energy and enthusiasm of poultry science students pursuing advanced degrees,” says Carly Feeks, publisher of Modern Poultry and owner of Feeks Media LLC.
“We see them present their work at the major scientific conferences. We also know that some will be fortunate enough to have their work published in scientific journals. But at the end of the day, we want to make sure their work and fresh ideas reach the decision-makers in the poultry industry. We developed ‘Rising Stars’ to put grad students in the spotlight.”
Rising Stars currently features articles written by two graduate research assistants at North Carolina State University — Justin Lowery and Ashley Gernat.
“This is a great professional-development opportunity to give graduate students experience with sharing their research findings, and ultimately showcasing your lab’s work, to an industry-oriented audience,” says Allison Pullin, PhD, assistant professor of animal welfare at North Carolina State University.
“It is exciting to see the diverse production topics that Modern Poultry is eager to highlight.”
Modern Poultry’s new Rising Stars section is easily accessible from website’s menu bar. Graduate research assistants interested in sharing their work and ideas on Modern Poultry should contact Modern Poultry’s editor, Joseph Feeks, to pitch their ideas and obtain writers’ guidelines.
