Science is the peer-reviewed academic publication of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and one of the world's top academic journals. It is also known as Science Magazine. It was originally published in 1880 and now has a weekly circulation of over 130,000 subscribers. Its projected circulation is around 400,000 individuals, because to institutional subscriptions and internet access, which serve a bigger population.
Science publishes science-related news, opinions on science policy, and other matters of interest to scientists and others concerned with the broad implications of science and technology, but it also publishes science-related news, opinions on science policy, and other matters of interest to scientists and others concerned with the wide implications of science and technology. Unlike most scientific magazines, which concentrate on a single topic, Science and its competitor Nature cover the whole spectrum of scientific fields. Science had a 47.728 impact factor in 2020, according to Journal Citation Reports.
Despite the fact that Science is published by the AAAS, membership in the organization is not required to publish in the journal. Papers from authors all around the world are welcome to submit. The rivalry to publish in Science is severe, as a paper published in such a well-referenced journal may help authors gain recognition and advance their careers. Only around 7% of papers submitted are accepted for publication.
The most recent issues of the journal are exclusively available online, through the main journal website, to subscribers, AAAS members, and for delivery to IP addresses at subscribed institutions; students, K–12 teachers, and others can subscribe at a discounted rate. Research publications written after 1997, on the other hand, are available for free (with online registration) one year after publication, i.e. delayed open access. Important public-health papers are also available for free, sometimes right after they are published. The pre-1997 Science archives are also available to AAAS members on the Science website, where it is referred to as "Science Classic." For an extra charge, institutions can add Science Classic to their memberships. JSTOR and Scientific Times have some older articles available.
HINARI, OARE, AGORA, and Scidev.net are just a few of the projects that give free or low-cost access to readers in poor nations.
The Science website also has a free "ScienceNow" section with "up to the minute science news," as well as "ScienceCareers," which offers free job opportunities for scientists and engineers. Science Express (Sciencexpress) publishes selected Science publications in advance via electronic publishing.
