In 2006, a small group of undergraduate students at the University of Toronto wanted to showcase research conducted by their peers, so they established the Journal of Undergraduate Life Sciences (JULS). Since then, JULS has been supported by various departments and faculty members across the university, as well as gaining recognition from the President of the University of Toronto, the Premier of Ontario, and the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta.
Each issue of JULS exhibits original research from various disciplines in the life sciences, with the hope of promoting interdisciplinary thinking. All articles are edited by a two-stage peer-review process. Complete issues are published annually and are available in both print and electronic format.
