SN gets a new look
The October 19 issue of Science News showed off a makeover with a clean, modern design and expanded department sections.
Remembering the passionate reader response to a more extensive redesign in 2008, Science News editors braced for a flood of letters. So far, the reaction to our changes has been mostly positive. Burt Kessler, a reader since 1970, e-mailed to say how much he likes the new design. “I have not enjoyed an issue so much in years. I am particularly pleased to see the return of very short articles, just a few column inches.” And the new Feedback design got a thumbs-up from Ron Belcher, who e-mailed that he really likes the summarized format. “Much easier to read,” he says.
