Scientific American is at the high end of American magazines. First published in 1845, this magazine appeals to highly educated individuals who remain curious about the world in which they live. You won't find a lot of filler in Scientific American--it's all about education and information, on some of the most topical subjects of the day.

The Final Word in Relevant Science

Scientific American covers science. Period. Astronomy, business and computer technology, the environment, health, nanotechnology, and on and on. Scientific American presents full-length, in-depth articles on these subjects and more, written by the finest science writers around.

In a world where people complain that the majority of media, particularly print media, is being dumbed down to meet the prevailing teen-aged aesthetic, Scientific American stands firm on its platform of information for its own sake. And buyers are fiercely loyal, paying up to three times the price that most other magazines charge for subscription rates. Further, their circulation continues to climb, as most of the other magazines in their category are experiencing dips.

Quality and authority of the writing is one reason for its continued success. Being well ahead of the curve is another. Topics are frequently raised in the pages of Scientific American weeks, months, and sometimes years before they appear in other sources of American media. Ultimately, the number one reason cited among Scientific American's passionately loyal audience is that the magazine simply is an enjoyable read which enriches their lives, and keeps them abreast of all current scientific developments. Many feel that for all this, two bucks and change per month is a small price to pay.
