Furthering science with the University of Arizona Lunar & Planetary Lab
The University of Arizona Lunar & Planetary Laboratory (UArizona LPL) operates as part of the University of Arizona’s Department of Planetary Sciences, which was formed in 1973 by the prominent astronomer Gerard P. Kuiper. Its research covers various areas of study, such as astrobiology, cosmochemistry, planetary astronomy, theoretical astrophysics, and more. It has been involved in dozens of historic missions, including Hubble, Mars 2020, OSIRIS-REx, and RAVEN.
The UArizona LPL needed a consistent editorial process to guide graduate students through rigorous journal submission.
Nova Arc editorial support serves as an external reminder and includes steps to ensure articles are publication ready. These steps include fact checking, journal formatting, language edits, mechanical copyediting, and walking the author through ways to improve pieces, tighten up language, and get articles ready for publication.
Nova Arc is currently providing writing and editing services to the RAVEN mission, which will research a next-generation Mars exploration concept in Icelandic lava fields.
Through our work with UArizona LPL, Nova Arc helps further humanity’s understanding of science, the universe, and ourselves. In doing so, we also fulfill Nova Arc’s mission to support the development of the field of science, help to ignite curiosity within individuals, and make science and knowledge accessible to everyone.
