About Scientific American

Monthly issues approach complex subjects, but present them in understandable and engaging ways. Well-illustrated with useful graphics and photos, Scientific American has delivered provocative content about modern science for well over a century. It is the oldest continuously published magazine in the United States.

Topics addressed in the magazine cover a range of technology and science developments that are newsworthy now, such as healthcare advances, climate change, infrastructure challenges, and privacy concerns. Scientific American also celebrates new ideas and emerging concepts in its pages. One of the magazine's most popular features is its "50, 100 & 150 Years Ago" column that takes a retrospective look at the discoveries of the past.

Mathematical games, science, and technology comprise some of its additional regular features. One of Scientific American's best-selling issues is its "Single Topic Issue" that is devoted to digging into a single topic, which changes from year to year, in depth.

Scientific American Magazine Subscription Review


Hi. I’m Jay Clarke, CEO of Magazines.com.

Scientific American magazine is the oldest running monthly publication in America. First published in 1845 as a weekly newspaper, some of the brightest minds in science have contributed articles to Scientific American over the past century and a half, including Albert Einstein himself.

Each issue is filled with cutting-edge information and news on the latest scientific ideas, theories and technologies. And it’s not just physics, it really spans every field of science. From Astrophysics, geology and biology, to medicine, forensics and even paleontology, a Scientific American magazine subscription really covers the full spectrum.

Now I do want to point out that while Scientific American focuses on the sciences, you don’t need to be a scientist to either understand or enjoy this magazine. It really strikes a great balance between providing unique, in-depth pieces that are also easily to digest.

Thanks for checking out our Scientific American subscription deals today at Magazines.com and please give us a call at 1-800-MAGAZINES if there’s anything we can do to help you find what you need.

SA is one magazine that is eagerly awaited in my household. I always learn something fascinating in each issue and there is always plenty of food for thought. The articles are extremely well-written and researched. Usually, they are technical enough without being too technical. Occasionally, an article gets too mumbo-jumbo and I stop reading it, but that is the exception. The mag has a great website, too. My husband and I are always saying to one another, "Did you see that article in this month's Scientific American?" The mag has sparked many great conversations.

Pros

  • Engaging Articles
  • Insightful Analysis
  • Up-To-Date Content
  • Well Written Articles

Cons

  • Too Many Ads

Best Uses

  • Older Readers
  • Younger Readers

While there are always some articles beyond my level of scientific comprehension, there are always some I thoroughly understand and enjoy. Even the advanced article are enjoyable in part.
I first subscribed in 1950 or 1951, and remember reading in it about the miniaturization of circuitry and transistor development.

Scientific American

By eheezy

from Michigan

Scientific American is a great magazine that is very informative and speaks on many issues that are being currently discussed in the public realm. In order to keep all of its readers informed however, they rehash topics many times over. ex. I have read many many articles about neutrinos. That being said, they provide insightful and interesting commentary on a wide range of scientific happenings.

Scientific American magazine

By none

from US

Magazine is a shell of its former self. Lacking in both quantity and quality now. After 30 years as a loyal subscriber, I am done. The evening news is almost as good and that is really pathetic.

Stopped subscription due to evolution topics

By Dissapointed

from California

I know, it's 2010 and many people have jumped on the evolution bandwagon (even if they truly know very little or nothing about evolution), but Scientific American magazine takes it to the next level.

No More Evolution in Scientific American

By None

from USA

I am sick and frankly, really tired of Scientific American promoting evolution as a fact of science in every issue. Evolution has no business even being in Scientific American magazine.
