Science News Sites

The question came up where to find accessible science news. Here are a few. Remember that some of these may be available via the Pratt's online services. Make sure to check with them or to ask a reference librarian about their databases.

New Scientist
Scientific American and Scientific American News

BBC Radio's In Our Time with Melvyn Bragg has very good background discussions that can be downloaded as MP3s

Take a look/listen to the other Science programs there
A bit more sensational at times are:
BBC World Service Science
New York Times Science
Perhaps the most respected, though not so accessible both in terms of the
publication and because of its cost, is Nature
