At Sinopah, we believe that publishing quality, original work in respected, peer-reviewed (and preferably open access) journals is an important component in delivering new methods and science to a broader audience.  We also know the value of popular media sources that can reach entirely new audiences, and those who usually do not directly see the products of what they, the public, often pay for.

Below is a list of our publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
