Science Service Becomes Society for Science & the Public

3:13pm, December 31, 2007

I am proud to give you the scoop on some "science news": Science Service next week becomes Society for Science & the Public (SSP).

The nonprofit organization Science Service was founded in 1921 to provide more and better information about the burgeoning world of scientific discovery. Science News—initially a mimeographed sheet known as The Science News-Letter—was the vehicle for disseminating news of research developments, initially to newspapers, then as a magazine available to the public by subscription.

This article is available only to subscribing members. Join SSP today or Log in.
