Intersect Editor Application 2017-2018
Intersect: The Stanford Journal of Science, Technology, and Society is an interdisciplinary, undergrad-run, peer-reviewed journal based at Stanford. The journal accepts submissions from scholars around the world, ranging from undergraduates to post-docs and incorporates them into a cohesive issue that delves deeply into the study of science, technology, & society. The journal is published quarterly at
and is cited regularly in Google Scholar.
Editors make up the backbone of Intersect's functioning team. They commit to weekly 1-hour editorial board meetings (time TBD) and ~1-3 hours of weekly editing work outside of regularly scheduled meetings. Editors work closely with authors to bring 1-2 pieces to publication each quarter. Every editor also takes on a smaller year-long side project that aids with the smooth functioning of the journal.
Please feel free to contact our Co-Editors-in-Chief, Aviva Klein Meyers (
