About the Journal

The Columbia Undergraduate Science Journal (CUSJ) is a peer-reviewed, open-access academic publication. We are committed to publishing manuscripts from significant scientific research and analysis. Each CUSJ paper undergoes a peer review process facilitated by the CUSJ Editorial Board and Columbia faculty. Publication in CUSJ is highly competitive.

CUSJ has two primary goals: to (1) publish works of the highest scholarship authored by undergraduates and (2) to educate students about the academic publication process.

CUSJ also manages the Columbia Junior Science Journal, an open-access science journal committed to publishing high quality research conducted by high school researchers. CJSJ can be accessed here

CUSJ publishes both research Journals annually and hosts an on-campus Spring Research Symposium every Spring.
