Hi. I’m Jay Clarke, CEO of
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 and please give us a call at 1-800-MAGAZINES if there’s anything we can do to help you find what you need.
