eMagazines available via Zinio

As you can see from the above list, several of our magazines are available in digital format, as well as in print, via our digital magazine portal, Zinio. The best thing about Zinio is that the magazines are always available to download. Unlike the print editions, there is no need to wait for the current issue to come off display or for someone else to return the copy you want to read.

Here are all the science related magazines available digitally via Zinio. If you haven’t used Zinio before you will need to set up a free Zinio account.
