Evolution: Education and Outreach for free

Evolution: Education and Outreach — the new journal aspiring to promote accurate understanding and comprehensive teaching of evolutionary theory for a wide audience — will be freely available through December 31, 2011, thanks to the generosity of its publisher, Springer. Edited by Niles Eldredge (who received NCSE's Friend of Darwin award in 2011) and Greg Eldredge, Evolution: Education and Outreach quickly became a hub for thoughtful discussion of evolution education, with a host of scientific articles, curriculum and education articles, editorials, viewpoint articles, and reviews of books and other media. And now you can access it all — for the rest of the year.

NCSE is amply represented, of course: NCSE's regular column, Overcoming Obstacles to Evolution Education; Louise S. Mead and Anton Mates's "Why Science Standards are Important to a Strong Science Curriculum and How States Measure Up"; Mick Wycoff's interview of NCSE's executive director Eugenie C. Scott; Steven Newton's review of Ralph O'Connor's The Earth on Show; and the special issue, edited by Glenn Branch, of the journal commemorating Eugenie C. Scott's sixty-fifth birthday, including essays by Brian Alters, Barbara Forrest, Robert M. Hazen, Lawrence M. Krauss, Kenneth R. Miller, Kevin Padian, and Robert T. Pennock.
