Donate to the Berkeley Scientific Journal!

Who we are:

Berkeley Scientific Journal (BSJ) is the premier undergraduate research journal of the University of California, Berkeley. Every semester, our undergraduate staff publishes independent research done by undergraduates at UC Berkeley, interviews with faculty members, and features articles on current issues in science. All research papers and features articles are reviewed by faculty members. The initial purpose of the journal was to provide an official forum in which Berkeley undergraduates could publish their independent research. 

But since its inception in 1996, the purpose of the journal has expanded to give the Berkeley scientific community a better understanding of how events here at Berkeley impact global concerns. The focus of the journal is broad, spanning scientific disciplines ranging from ecology to engineering, and from astronomy to biochemistry. Our intended audience includes, but is not limited to, UC Berkeley students, faculty, and the surrounding community. A new issue of BSJ is published twice a year on eScholarship, Issuu, and our website! This semester, we also want to launch our inaugural magazine, The Hypothesis, that will feature more short-form content for our readers!
Club Social Event on Campus with our members!

This year, with your donations, the dream of our editorial team is to: 

1) Increase BSJ readership as much as possible both inside and outside the Berkeley community

2) Host large-scale guest speaker events on campus

3) Secure enough funding to publish our issues in print. Each BSJ issue represents the dedication and talent of our students who produce interesting and high-quality work 

To break it down further, $1000 will go towards printing and shipping costs, and the remaining $500 will go towards guest speaking events and other outreach events to educate the community about science through journalism. Make a gift today to help make this a reality for BSJ!
