Amazon.com Review

Who Reads Discover<>? Discover<> attracts intelligent and curious readers - forward thinkers and public advocates engaging in a dialogue of action that influences opinion leaders and encourages innovation. They are active in their communities, carry a strong voice concerning political issues and are very active in environmental groups.
What You Can Expect in Each Issue:

  • Vital Signs: Discover<>’s longest-running and most popular column. Each month, an emergency room doctor describes and solves a real-life medical mystery.
  • Better Planet: Questioning the choices we make about our environment, and how we affect its overall health.
  • 20 Things You Didn’t Know About...: An exploration of arcane and interesting bits of information that you may not be able to Google.
  • Data: Informative news section with short pieces on breaking science developments.
  • Blinded by Science: A column where humor meets science, written by novelist Bruno Maddox, nominated for the 2007 National Magazine Award, Columns and Commentary.
  • ThinkTech: Discover<>'s monthly look at technology moving out of the lab and into the mainstream.
  • Features: Cover subjects represent a selection of topical science, technology, environmental, global and health issues that affect our life and the world around us. Recent issues include: Year in Science, Dedicated issue, The Secret Einstein, Better Planet, Extreme Engineering, Scientist of the Year.
Past Issues:
Contributors: Discover<> draws on the talents of some of America's premier nonfiction writers, including Walter Isaacson, Jared Diamond, Jim Holt, and Carl Zimmer. Some of our contributors are veteran science journalists; others regard science just as one source of great ideas. What they all have in common is a rare ability to conduct deep investigations into the most complex topics and emerge with stories that will entertain and enlighten anyone who appreciates a good narrative.
Magazine Layout: Discover<> gives its readers the real story: on-the-scene photography, highly personal portrait shots, and cutting edge scientific imagery. The design is elegant and refined--not dry like a textbook, not glossy and remote like a travel guide. Every issue contains a balance of big-idea, text driven stories and more image-rich features that convey the feel of where and how the most amazing research happens.
Comparisons to Other Magazines: Discover<> examines what really matters about science and places it squarely in a human context. It is an accessible guide to the ideas that matter most in today's world. Unlike Scientific American<>, it is accessible to any curious reader, not just to science insiders. Unlike Popular Science<> and Popular Mechanics<>, it focuses on ideas and discoveries, not gadgets and weapons. And unlike National Geographic<>, it does not shy away from the personal, political, and social aspects of science. Above all, Discover<> is unique in combining deep, probing reporting with accessible, narrative writing--more in the mode of The New Yorker<> than in the style of traditional science journalism.
Advertising: US Navy, Chevy, Hartford, Bose, Aridian Publishing, Shell, BBC, PBS, VISA, Ford, Ambien, GM, Sony, Sanyo, Discover<>y Channel, Math Tutor, Rosetta Stone, Gel Pro, Caravan Tours, First Street, Vanguard, Michelin, Lantus, etc.
Awards:
  • Discover<> was presented with an award by the American Society of Journalists and Authors for July '07 feature on Science and Islam.
  • MPA Digital Awards 2007 BEST PODCAST SERIES: Recognizes creativity and content innovation in a magazine’s podcast series – Discover<>’s Vital Signs won 3rd place.
  • 2007 Ellie National Magazine Award Finalist, Columns and Commentary

Amazon.com Review: Science rules the headlines these days, with new developments each week in genetics, astrophysics, computers, and medicine, and Discover<> is a great way to get a broad spectrum of science news. Designed for the general reader, Discover<> translates and interprets many of the same stories professionals peruse in Scientific American<>. Accessible articles on genetically engineered food, what's living in your pillows, real robots in action, and what makes a Stradivarius sing add up to a truly delightful family science magazine. Each issue brings to light new and newsworthy topics to stimulate dinnertime and water-cooler conversations beyond the mundane, and Discover<> spices the mix with puzzles, Web links, book reviews, and experiments for amateur scientists. --Therese Littleton<>
