Our publication and comment policies

Our comment policy

The ideas expressed on the Berkeley Science Review are not necessarily those of the University of California, Berkeley; they are not official, not predictable, and not of one mind. In keeping with the spirit of the Free Speech Movement, the thoughts here are those of the individual authors.

We love talking about science with you all, and we want to keep this a friendly and comfortable atmosphere for discussion. The ground rules for commenting, drawn from the UC Berkeley Principles of Community, are as follows:

  • Stay on topic. We will remove posts that rant far afield.
  • Be civil and respectful of others, even if you disagree with their posts.
  • Don’t get personal.

We’re busy graduate students, so please understand that your comments may not be read immediately. Any comments that we believe are unfit for publishing will be removed.
