Good Scientific (biology-related) Magazine

Postby jwxie » Wed Aug 10, 2011 9:14 pm

The readers are high school students, and maybe lower division of undergraduate. I don't mean that I want a baby magazine, but a magazine that should interest most readers. Comprehensive, in general. If it covers genetics would be cool.

What are some of your recommendations?

Free / Low-cost seasonal magazines. Monthly might be too much.
Digitals are cool, but might not be the best as reading from the screen can be quite irritating sometime.
Will take any recommendations.


If the magazine covers other sciences would be fine too. Just thought we can still narrow down some to biology

There are a few biology-related articles in every issue of Scientific American (monthly). A step up in difficulty is American Scientist (every two months), but with guidance from a biology instructor that would be a very good source. A major difference between these two is that Scientific American allows very little mathematics in the articles, while American Scientist is aimed at a scientifically-trained audience and allows math. However, the articles in American Scientist are intended to introduce ideas to people trained in diverse fields of science, so while they can be assumed to share some mathematical background the articles don't assume much background in the specific specialty that deals with the article topic; the editors know that articles on solar panel efficiency will be read by biologists, geochemists, computer engineers and every other flavor of scientist or engineer.
