Welcome to Boston University’s Emerald Review:

The Emerald Review is an undergraduate student-run publication that seeks to highlight the works of students in the field of earth and environmental news. The publication offers viewpoints from a broad spectrum of opinions and backgrounds in order to promote a general understanding of a green and sustainable world. We are a small dedicated staff of volunteer students who are fascinated by the natural world.


The Emerald Review publishes articles under four categories: Politics, Business, Science, and Culture. Our Section Editors have worked hard to make each article you read a refined work. We have had the pleasure of receiving articles on topics ranging from the international climate negotiations in Paris to Boston University’s own Earth House. We encourage first time readers to take a few moments to read some of our work, learn more about our staff, and get to know our sister organization, Boston University’s Environmental Student Organization.
