Well, it’s the weekend again and the last thing anyone should be doing is sitting in front of their computer, but, hey, you don’t always have a choice, right? You have to keep up with all that reading, just to stay ahead of your game. Well, there is an alternative, and it’s right here under your nose on Sciencebase. It’s called extra silico visualated textual assimilation, or “reading” to you and me.
It often involves the selection of an analog textual disseminator from one’s own shelving or that of the local library or bibliographic outlet. It can, however, also involve the retrieval of a papyric derivative accumulated missive product, such as a newspaper or magazine, which may reach your domicile via the postal service.
What am I talking about? You may well wonder! Free science magazines, that’s what. Check out the Sciencebase science mags section for qualified free subscriptions to a wide range of bio, pharma, chemical, engineering, and biotech publications, including BioTechniques and Drug Discovery Today to which I am a past contributor, Bio-IT World, and Small Times. Every valid subscription helps support my weekday words on Sciencebase, costs you absolutely nothing, and gets you something free to read for those truly offline moments in your life. We all need them.
