A note on today’s new-lookmagazine
New Scientist is devoted to innovation, and occasionally we need to turn the mirror on our selves.It is more than a decade since themagazine has seen significant changes, and even we had to admit that parts of it were looking a bit jaded. We know from talking to you, our readers, that you love the magazine and aren’t looking for wholesale change. So we hope you enjoy this first issue of a modestly refreshed New Scientist Magazine.
First off, we have slightly updated the design, with what we hope is a fresher, brighter feel.And we have created a dedicated “Views” section between our news reports and in-depth features. This brings together your letters with comment and reviews on science, culture and society. We have an exciting roster of new columnists, too, starting today with Annalee Newitz on novel
tech. (Keep an eye out for James Wong on food myths, Chanda Prescod-Weinstein’s adventures in space-time and Graham Lawton stalking the environmental front line.) There are also now columns
in the culture pages, kicked off in this issue by Jacob Aron on games.
For a bit of light relief, our expanded “Back Pages” feature a cornucopia of delights. Besides old favourites Feedback and The Last Word – now Almost The Last Word – we have a weekly crossword, plus a new puzzle (good luck!) and quick quiz. Over the next 10 weeks you can also learn how to be a “maker”, in a course designed for all ages. On the very back page, there is
now a light-hearted Q and A slot. Do please let us know what you think of the changes by emailing me at: firstname.lastname@example.org ❚
