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. The result is a unique summary of the
news of science. Each issue contains 15 to 20 news reports,
plus annotated listings of new books in the sciences -- and
it's absolutely free.

The SW complete weekly news reports are available free via
Email. To subscribe, send SUB SW to <prismx at>.
