*See the Announcements for current information about applying.

There are many ways to get involved in Saltman Quarterly, from being a review board member to participating in the creation of the journal as a core staff member.

Only biology majors and minors are eligible to hold core staff positions. Communications, computer science, visual arts, and other majors may be considered for productions positions. Undeclared majors may participate in the review board until a major is declared.

We require individuals to reapply every year even if they are currently on staff.

Club Activities

We host a number of different social and academic opportunities for our staff. 


Each quarter, we provide opportunities to learn about how to review scientific literature through review board workshops, which are supplemented by workshops led by faculty.

We also hold special events which contribute to our understanding of scientific communication, appreciation for the legacy of Dr. Paul Saltman, and enrich the undergraduate experience for biology majors. Past events have included a special lecture by Laura Zahn, Associate Editor of Science, and a Geisel Library Special Collections tour, emphasizing the collected works of Dr. Saltman.

The culminating event held at the end of the year is the annual Biological Sciences Research Showcase, which generally takes place during the 10th week of Spring Quarter. The new issues of SQ and UTS are released at the showcase.


Each year, the Publicity Chair hosts an annual social event that includes dinner where SQ staff members and review board members get the opportunity to socialize with staff advisors and members of the Faculty Advisor Board.

We are continually seeking new ways for the Saltman Quarterly Program to be both an academically and socially fulfilling experience for its members.
