Keeps me up to date on this happening now and in the pipeline. I like the health information that is included. If I could only subscribe to one news magazine, this would certainly be it.

I fell like a science student again!


I am enjoying a science journal that is understandable but not watered down. The plan is to share the issues with my colleagues and students this year at school.

This is the best overview of scientific news for general public.


I am glad to be subscribing to Science News again. Science has always been an interest of mine and since I do not work in a scientific field,this magazine is a great way to keep up with what is happening in a broad range of sciences.

The best science magazine


In my opinion, this is the best science magazine aimed at non-specialists. Unlike Scientific American, which focuses on deeper coverage of very few individual discoveries through its feature articles, Science News provides brief but self-contained summaries of all important acomplishments across all sciences. Once you get basic information from SN, it is easy to look up the details online or in the references provided in the magazine. Science News performs an important function of informing public about recent progress in science, and, unlike other similar publications, it cannot be replaced by books or online resources, such as Wikipedia. As a researcher, I rely on this publcation to stay informed about progress in science outside of my specialty.
