Au Science Magazine is a glossy publication and blog produced by the Science Journalism Society at the University of Aberdeen which aims to showcase research taking place in Aberdeen’s universities and share the passion of its contributors for science.
Au Science Magazine, along with its accompanying website and associated public events, attract high levels of interest, participation, discussion and commentary from people in all walks of life — from the general public to students, educators and scientific researchers alike. We pride ourselves on being able to share interesting, entertaining and high-quality science journalism in digital and traditional printed formats with a diverse and worldwide audience.
Student members of the Science Journalism Society are responsible for everything from obtaining funding to the editing, design and publication of Au Science Magazine. We rely entirely on funding from advertisers and partners and we are therefore always willing to consider new partnerships to help us keep the printers (and servers) running!
If you would like to learn more about what we do or help us to fund the magazine then please don’t hesitate to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
