About Us

Goodbye to the days when you had to be affiliated with a university or research institute in order to access awesome, cutting-edge scientific research. GotScience Magazine is a digital publication that delivers comprehensible science to the public—for free.

What we do

GotScience.org is a volunteer-powered project of Science Connected, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing public understanding of science and creating equal access to science education. The GotScience Magazine team translates complex research findings into accessible insights on science, nature, and technology.

How we do it

Most academic papers are still tucked away in journals behind expensive paywalls. So how do we find that research and deliver it to you for free? Our team receives press releases about the latest scientific discoveries. Our writers start with the press releases, then read the research papers, reach out to the scientists with questions, fact-check everything, and finally write up the results for you to read. We do this in cooperation with scientists, universities, research labs, museums, and publishers.

Quality and integrity are key

In our work to increase public understanding of science, we uphold the highest possible standards of scientific and journalistic integrity. We do not sensationalize, cherry-pick, or misrepresent the research reports. We do not report pseudoscience or mistake correlation for causation. We source peer-reviewed academic journals and follow the Code of Ethics of the Society of Professional Journalists.

Have you got science? You do, now!
