New Scientist


New Scientist is the world’s most popular weekly science and technology publication. Our website, app and print editions cover international news from a scientific standpoint, and ask the big-picture questions about life, the universe and what it means to be human.

New Scientist has been a leading source of rational, evidence-based thinking for more than 60 years. Since the magazine was founded in 1956 for “all those interested in scientific discovery and its social consequences”, it has expanded to include videos, podcasts, live events and New Scientist Academy which offers engaging online courses.

New Scientist Academy courses feature video tutorials from world-renowned experts, who draw on the latest cutting edge scientific research to explore mindblowing questions about the universe, about the nature of being, and how the dots of our existence join up, enabling learners to fully understand and appreciate the hottest themes across science, technology, medicine and the environment.

We believe education is the best way to a better life and world. New Scientist is based in London, UK, with offices in the US and Australia
