Today, we're introducing a brand-new and exciting feature: Popular Science is now a totally digital publication. No more printed copies of PS - just like never before.
All the content from the print issue plus an unlimited number of new articles each month, so you won't miss anything! And best of all, it's completely free. But don't worry, there will be a paywall at some point - we just wanted to make sure our new venture was ready to go when we were.
We hope you enjoy your stay online and look forward to hearing your comments.
Science, often known as Science Magazine, is the American Association for the Advancement of Science's (AAAS) peer-reviewed academic publication and one of the world's top academic periodicals. It was originally published in 1880, is presently disseminated weekly, and has around 130,000 subscribers. The journal covers topics in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, technology, business, the environment, and other areas of science.
As a scientific journal, it reports on new research findings and reviews literature on topics within its scope. Authors of articles are typically scientists who have published work in their field of interest or are students or researchers working under their supervision. Articles are edited to ensure quality before publication; accordingly, they are usually not written by single authors but by teams of authors working together. An editor at Science publishes announcements of new issues, reviews articles that cover recent developments in his or her area of expertise, and invites submissions from scholars interested in writing about specific subjects within their fields of expertise. Each issue also includes articles on topics suggested by readers.
Science aims to be an objective, neutral forum for the discussion of current research results and opinions on topics within the scope of academia. As such, it is valued by scientists as a reliable source of information about their disciplines. Non-scientists may find it useful for keeping up with current trends in science.
The magazine is published six times a year and available online every week.
The world's most popular weekly science and technology journal is New Scientist. Our website, app, and print editions cover international events from a scientific perspective and tackle major questions about life, the universe, and what it means to be human.
New Scientist is published every week by Nature Publishing Group, which also publishes Nature magazine. The editor-in-chief is Max Anderson.
New Scientist was founded in 1960 by British scientist James Lovelock who wanted to provide a global forum for discussing important developments in science and technology. He saw this as an opportunity after the Second World War when the focus had shifted away from scientific research towards military competition.
Since its inception, New Scientist has been committed to providing a platform for leading scientists to communicate their work effectively with a broad audience. Each issue contains articles on topics as diverse as space travel, nuclear power, artificial intelligence, and molecular nanotechnology. There are also interviews with key figures in science, reviews of new books on science, and news items covering events such as Nobel prizes and asteroid discoveries.
New Scientist is available free online every Thursday. It is also available through many retail stores and bookshops around the world.
