CTSI-supported undergraduate opportunities

Undergraduate Science Journal (USJ)

The UCLA Undergraduate Science Journal is an annual print publication which showcases research and review articles written by UCLA students. From start to finish, journal production is led by an undergraduate staff consisting of reviewers, editors, and layout editors. All journal articles are peer reviewed and edited by undergraduates selected from diverse science backgrounds.

Each year, USJ staff members are honored with a certificate awarded by Vice Provost Judith Smith at an annual banquet. In addition, Executive Board members and the most outstanding research and review articles also receive the Vice Provost Award of Excellence.

If you are interested in browsing through a past issue of the UCLA Undergraduate Science Journal, several copies are available at the UCLA College and Bio-Med libraries, the Honors Office, the Pre-Professional Advising Office, and the offices of the undergraduate science counselors. A sampling of articles from previous editions is below.
