SCIENCE-WEEK is a free weekly Email digest of the news of
science read each week by 40,000+ people in the scientific
community in more than 30 countries.

Beginning a few weeks ago, the number of news digests has been
substantially increased, and a Book Notes section has been added.

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 is detailed for biologists. The result is
a unique summary of the news of science.

15 to 20 news reports a week, plus annotated listings of new
books in the sciences -- and it's absolutely free.
