ENGS 005H & K: Writing Science & Nature - Grosvenor (Fall 2017)

Selected List of Substantive Magazines Provided by the Library

Substantive magazines offer somewhat more in-depth coverage of news and current events/issues than popular titles, and are aimed at people who have no specialized training in an area but who want more analysis than a popular publication can offer. The authors are a mix of journalists, staff writers, and people who work in a field. Articles frequently refer to research studies, but the author writes about that research in an accessible way, often through a type of story-telling or through the lens of a specific event or person.
