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 via
Email. To subscribe, send SUB SW to <request at>.
