The 2015 Editorial Board consisted of six undergraduate students, typically in their Sophistor years. The review process is done by an editorial team including academics and postgraduate students for each stream (biology, chemistry and physics). Academic staff involved in the publication sat on the Academic Oversight Committee, overseeing and signing off on the review process.
