For many scientists, creating a journal cover to accompany the submission of an article for publication offers another opportunity for discovery. Cover images require the team that creates them to reexamine the scientific work through metaphor, representation, and reflection, and in so doing, provide another point of connection for author and audience alike.  A manifestation of this dialogue, these images seek to convey the essence of a paper and inspire the viewer to learn more about the underlying science. A great deal of thought, creativity, and collaboration goes into the creation of a cover image, even though most cover submissions, by necessity, will never be printed. Until now.
