# What science periodicals do you recommend?

I don't know of any science magazines I could subscribe to (either online or in paper format) and keep up to date with the latest physics news. The only thing I can remotely think of is Scientific American, and that seems a little too commercialized/geared toward the public for my taste. I was wondering if anybody had any recommendations?

There is also Discovery (?) magazine, but that is all I can think of right now.

Guessing that you are from the US, I'd walk into a borders store and see what they have in their collection and if you like any of them.

The is the NewScientist for instance www.newscientist.com
or ScienceNews www.sciencenews.org
AmericanScientist www.americanscientist.org
the ScientificAmerican as you mentioned or DiscoveryMagazine..

Try "Physics Today" from the APS. Spendy, though.

The Journal "Science" from the AAAS, 52 times a year, enough to keep anyone busy, subscription, or University Library...
(I've only found it once in a "regular library")

Ok.. this can't be right.. $75 for 51 weekly Science issues? Is it really that cheap? I always thought it must be$200 or something :P

Cool and just what price does it say for non-professionals or do they even sell to them, anymore? (as that is what I was/am)

Plus then I had to trade into US$, back then, if wasn't cheap,$100.00 Canadian would trade, at a bank, (costs more) for $60 to$65 US, so $160 US would have cost me over$200 Canadian...inexpensive, in comparision to the, then 'Stand' price of \$6.00 US per issue
