SCIENCE-WEEK is a free weekly Email digest of the news of
science read each week by 50,000+ people in the scientific
community in more than 40 countries. News briefs from the major
journals are amplified with enough background material to make
them intelligible to nonspecialists: the biology is detailed for
physicists and chemists, and the physics and chemistry are
detailed for biologists. Each issue contains 15 to 20 news
reports, annotated listings of new books in the sciences, a
Positions Available section, and other notices of interest to
science professionals.

The SW complete weekly news reports are available free at URL:
<http://scienceweek.com>.

There is also an Email edition. The Email edition is an ASCII
transmission of the weekly web posting, and is suitable for both
plain text file readers (and Email software) and web browsers.
You can subscribe to the Email edition at:
<request at scienceweek.com>.

A Daily Science News edition of SCIENCE-WEEK is also available
free at URL: <http://scienceweek.com/daily.htm>.

The daily edition has a broader coverage of science news than
the weekly edition, and the reports are usually much shorter.
Many, but not all, reports in the daily edition appear in
forthcoming weekly editions with added explications and
background material. The free daily edition is not available via
Email.

SCIENCE-WEEK is a free retransmission educational resource,
which means this headline notice and each weekly issue of
SCIENCE-WEEK itself can be retransmitted if intact by any
installation. All back issues of SCIENCE-WEEK are available at
the SW website.
