Science magazine


Science magazine

A science magazine is a periodical publication with news, opinions and reports about science for a non-expert audience. A periodical publication for scientific experts, in contrast, is called a "scientific journal". Science magazines are read by non-scientists and scientists who want accessible information on fields outside their specialization.

They are an important means of communication between the scientific community and the wider community.Who|date=October 2007

Articles in science magazines are sometimes republished or summarized by the general press.
