It’s all systems go as we prepare to launch Knowable Magazine from Annual Reviews at the World Conference of Science Journalists (WCSJ) which starts on October 26 in San Francisco. Our new digital magazine is supported by generous grants from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
Knowable Magazine will explore the real-world significance of scholarly research, punctuated with forays into wonder and awe. Review articles written by leading scholars from the nearly 50 Annual Review journals serve as springboards for stories in the online-only magazine. Through in-depth features, explainers, articles, essays, interviews, infographics, slideshows and comics, Knowable Magazine bridges the gap between review articles written by invited experts and the information needs of a broader audience.
Knowable Magazine Editor, Eva Emerson, formerly of Science News said:
“Scientists have been incredibly successful in exploring and describing much of the world and universe. At Knowable Magazine, we want to provide a current picture of what’s known and what’s not known about important areas of research.”
For those of you coming to the WCSJ, here’s a snapshot of where you can find us and when.
If you need an additional reason to attend our “Meet the Knowable Editors” event (with chocolate) on Friday afternoon, then we are hoping to have an additional free item to give away to the first 100 people who show up.
Rosie Mestel, Deputy Editor for Knowable Magazine, will also be at the Unofficial Pop-Up Pitch Slam on Saturday, October 28.
