New Web magazine spotlights Stanford science, technology
The Stanford News Service on Oct. 3 launched a Web-based magazine devoted to science and technology at Stanford. Available at http://scitech.stanford.edu, SciTech@Stanford spotlights in its inaugural issue the 100th anniversary of the Nobel Prize with articles, videos and links to related Web resources.
The News Service developed SciTech@Stanford to give major science and technology stories more prominence, and allow the News Service to present these complex issues in depth. Videos, charts, animations and other visual elements all will be used in an effort to captivate readers and clarify complex subjects.
In addition to serving as a vehicle to communicate science news, SciTech@Stanford also will position science and technology stories in a broader context by directing interested readers to pages that list university departments, labs, centers and related articles. An A to Z listing of Websites related to Stanford science is available through this site.
The News Service plans to update portions of SciTech@Stanford on a weekly basis, while other sections, such as the feature article, will be updated monthly.
