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 30 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, plus annotated listings of new books in the sciences.

The SW complete weekly news reports are available free via
