Episode 78

In the third of four episodes focusing on nonprofit publisher Annual Reviews and the ongoing evolution of the organization, Bill talks with Richard Gallagher, the President and Editor-in-Chief, about Knowable Magazine, a digital publication that’s free to read and reuse (CC BY-ND), and brings a journalistic lens to the organization’s expert content. They discuss how it serves as a bridge between Annual Reviews’ academic review articles and the broader needs of the science-interested public. Richard also articulates the importance of accurate scientific information to a well-informed democracy.
