About the BSR
The Berkeley Science Review is a graduate student-run magazine that aims to highlight the groundbreaking research occurring at UC Berkeley in a wide variety of scientific disciplines, from biology to physics to computer science.
Founded in 2001 by a dedicated group of hard-working graduate student volunteers, the magazine’s aim has always been more than simply reporting on the exciting research going on across our campus; we strive to ensure that all of our articles are accessible to interested readers of any background — the “intelligent non-specialist”, as we like to say.
To that end, we train scientists and nonscientists alike to communicate scientific research to the public in a clear, interesting, and informative manner.
Today, we continue to be a volunteer-run organization, drawing from students and postdocs across campus who generously provide their skills and expertise to produce this once-a-semester snapshot of some of the exciting work happening in the labs here at UC Berkeley.
