Funds from this grant provide one year of support to Knowable Magazine, a new digital-native publication launched in October 2017 by Annual Reviews. Annual Reviews, publisher of a prestigious series of comprehensive, high-quality scientific field reviews, has a large following among scientists. Knowable is an attempt to bring that content to a broader demographic. Its articles use established scientific knowledge and research-based facts to highlight the issues society is grappling with, such as health and disease, aging, and climate change. Grant funds will provide general operating support and enhanced outreach for Knowable as it expands its audience, forms relationships with corporate partners, and moves toward independent sustainability.
