The Office of the Vice President for Research recently launched the first issue of its newest publication, Texas Tech Discoveries: Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity.
Texas Tech Discoveries is an online-based, bi-annual publication used to inform the community and the world about the outstanding academics and research at Texas Tech. The magazine is an opportunity as an emerging research institution to tell the stories of Texas Tech’s scholars who are engaged in disciplines from the physical and social sciences to the arts and humanities.

Texas Tech Discoveries is a showcase for the broad range of work that is the foundation of our mission.”
The publication includes profiles in excellence and discovery, featuring Texas Tech distinguished researchers, graduate and undergraduate students, and alumni; the latest research stories and news briefs; book announcements; accomplishments and awards; and interactive media, from video and audio clips to image galleries and social media.
"There is no better place to be right now than Texas Tech University,” President Guy Bailey said. “We have set a goal to become one of the great public national research universities. Our new electronic magazine spotlights exactly why I believe that Texas Tech will achieve its goal."
Texas Tech Discoveries will be released in the spring and fall. Read the latest edition at www.texastechdiscoveries.ttu.edu.
