NSU professor published in scientific journal, named co-editor
ABERDEEN, S.D. – Northern State University professor Dr. Alyssa Anderson has
been named co-editor of the CHIRONOMUS Newsletter on Chironomidae Research.
An editorial by Anderson, assistant professor of biology at NSU, was published this fall in the CHIRONOMUS, a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
In her editorial, “The Importance of Illustration,” Anderson explains why drawings are critical components of research and should continue to be used along with digital images. The article can be found HERE.
The 2013 edition of the newsletter also featured an article announcing Anderson as one of its new co-editors. That article can be found HERE. Anderson’s role as co-editor involves overseeing the manuscript review process, which includes selecting and requesting reviews from appropriate scientists and making decisions regarding article suitability/quality for publication.
Anderson, a native of Lake Crystal, Minn., joined Northern’s faculty in December 2012. She received her bachelor’s degree in biology from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minn.; and her Ph.D. in entomology, with a graduate minor in conservation biology, from the University of Minnesota. Her primary interest is in the environmental side of biology, including aquatic ecology, entomology, ornithology and conservation biology.
