Beginning in January 2009, Bulletin subscribers began receiving the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists magazine in its new digital format only. To save on the steeply rising costs of paper and postage, the Bulletin announced in late 2008 that it would no longer produce a print edition of the magazine.
Through individual Bulletin accounts, subscribers are able to book mark articles, set up news alerts, browse by subject and author, and more. As of January 2009, subscribers also had full, searchable access to the past 10 years of Bulletin articles and source documents.
Instructions were sent to subscribers in December 2008 about setting up accounts. For questions about this transition, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Bulletin is now accepting submissions from high school students, college undergraduates, and graduate students for its upcoming feature, Voices of Tomorrow. One lucky author will win a trip to the 2013 Doomsday Clock Symposium.
Former Governing Board Chair Bill Revelle and his wife, Eleanor, have announced that they will double every gift made to the Bulletin before May 31 for increased coverage of climate and energy issues, up to a total of $50,000.
Dr. George Poste, Co-Director and Chief Scientist, Complex Adaptive Systems (http://casi.asu.edu/) and Regents’ Professor and Del E. Webb Chair in Health Innovation at Arizona State University, has joined the Governing Board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, effective March 2013.
Applications for the Bulletin's 2013 Leonard M. Rieser undergraduate fellowships are due March 15, 2013
