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 scienceweek.com>.

The weekly edition of SW is also available free at URL:
<http://scienceweek.com>. 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.

A daily science news edition of SCIENCE-WEEK is 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.
