Comments on Micscape and contributions
Contributions: Any modern format welcomed i.e. pdf. doc/docx with embedded images, or html + jpegs.
December 2014 articles
written by students for
the 'Principles and Applications of Photomacrography'
offered in the
Photographic Communications (BPC) program 2014
at the Rochester Institute
of Technology (RIT),
NY State, USA.
Acknowledgements: Many thanks to all the students over the years for sharing their
enthusiasm and skills on such a wonderful variety of topics. Writing
an article for Micscape initially formed part of their course as an assignment,
which was a neat idea originally proposed by Ted Kinsman the course
instructor in 2004 and repeated in most following years. Thanks to Ted
for all the work behind the scenes to make this happen. Also thanks
to Michael Peres, the dept. head (and course instructor 2009) for his introduction
and for maintaining the department's generous collaboration over the years.

In Focus: Independent Generation of Research (IGoR)
We support a new web site 'IGoR' which allows non-professional microscopists
and scientists to add to a pool of articles and projects. IGoR's goal is to help everyone, from science enthusiasts and hobbyists to professionals, do scientific research. IGoR provides a platform for people to pool their knowledge, resources, time, and creativity so that everyone can pursue their own scientific curiosity. IGoR will help:
- Non-scientists and students get started in research.
Science teachers bring research to the classroom.
- Amateur scientists take their science to a new level.
- Professionally-trained independent scientists fill gaps in their skills and resources.
- Academic scientists connect with the broader community.

We are delighted to
receive contributions small or large from
microscopy enthusiasts whether a novice or
expert. If you have an image, tip or article,
why not share it, this magazine is what you
