Good magazine for the professional scientist


Good magazine but a bit too technical for the lay person like myself. The detail provided in the studies seems like it is more for the professional people than the average person.

Very Good Magazine


Excellent magazine for those who are interested in current events in the scientific field. Well writted articles that are for the most part, very interesting.

Good Mag


I like the articles, but the font is too small for easy reading. Also, it would be nice to have better pictures to go with the articles. Overall, though, I really like the magazine. Interesting articles and subjects covered.

The formatting could be a little better


The font is too small (I have perfect vision) and the visuals accompanying the articles could be a bit sleeker. I like the articles but its the formatting that is unpleasant.

Among the best of the science magazines


I find each article clearly written and highly informative. Keeps me up to date on the latest scientific research.

Super service and superb resource!

Scientific American - Excellent and Smart
