There are a great deal of regularly published scientific magazines that are aimed at the
general public and people who work in academia. If you’re looking to purchase a science
magazine then you should be able to find a selection of different scientific magazines
from your local newsagent.
A science magazine, such as the very popular New Scientist, will typically feature a
number of articles, many of which will focus on current events that have some scientific
significance. Many of the contributors to these magazines are themselves notable
academics and they will often offer their opinion on scientific matters that are covered
in the publication.
Most people will find that a science magazine is published once a month, although there
are some that are published more frequently, however this is entirely dependent on the
focus of the science magazine. Some of these magazines will cover fairly obscure and
specialised topics and as a result gathering enough information and material to publish
an issue more regularly than every other month can be challenging.
Although a great deal of the widely available science magazines are aimed at academics
and people who work in scientific circles there are also publications
targeted at those in education. These may be primary or secondary education, and will cater to the specific needs and abilities of the target audience. A children’s science magazine will often contain a variety of
useful scientific information that could be beneficial to a child’s education, but will be presented in a more accessible way that enables the reader to understand the concepts without excessive jargon.
