Letter from the Editors: Business, Science & Technology Section

Dear Reader,

With changing media demands on campus, The Journal will be starting a regular Business, Science & Technology section. This is the first time since 2014 that a new section will be implemented.

The Journal has long under-represented the perspectives of students in business and science programs. By launching this new section, we’re excited to offer more opportunities to students across campus, including those in STEM and business disciplines to develop their writing and editing skills at a professional level.

All of these changes are to make the paper more dynamic, and representative of the diverse group of readers on campus.

We would like to re-commit our efforts to racialised and marginalised students. We hope to continue to provide avenues to support these community members’ interactions with The Journal.

Contributors writing for this and any other section will have access to the BIPOC Advisory Board to seek support, and to consult on any coverage related to racialised and marginalised communities.

We hope to continue the work started by the Editors of Volume 149 and 150 in providing paid compensation to QTBIPOC contributors across the paper. While this isn’t all encompassing, more initiatives will follow in the coming year.

Applications for the inaugural Business, Science & Technology Editor position are now open on AMS Apply. We welcome any and all students to apply for this position.

Over the summer, The Journal will be publishing three times, at the end of May, June, and July. Your feedback is essential to our product, dear reader. Consider submitting letters to the editor by using the email below or engaging with our section editors. Your feedback and input keeps us agile, and responsible to the demands of those we serve.

We’re excited for the year ahead—how will you get involved?

Yours truly,

Asbah Ahmad & Cassidy McMackon, Editors in Chief


190 University Avenue
