THE SCIENTIST is a biweekly newspaper for scientists and the research community. It is circulated internationally to researchers, administrators, and policy makers in academia, industry, and government. It covers current issues and events that impact the professional research environment--including funding legislation, new grants, employment and salary trends, career advancement opportunities, ethics and conflicts of interest, representation of women and minorities in science, and the interplay of industrial, academic, and governmental research.

It is now available electronically--in full text and free of charge--on the Internet. Issues from November 1992 onward are available.
