About Knowable Magazine

What is known? What isn’t known? Knowable Magazine, the digital publication from Annual Reviews, seeks to make that knowledge accessible to all. Knowable Magazine explores the real-world significance of scholarly work through a journalistic lens. We report on the current state of play across a wide variety of fields — from agriculture to high-energy physics; biochemistry to water security; the origins of the universe to psychology.

Review articles written by leading scholars from the 50 Annual Reviews journals serve as springboards for stories in Knowable Magazine. Through in-depth features, explainers, articles, essays, interviews, infographics, slideshows, and comics, Knowable Magazine presents insights from research to a broader audience. The content is published under a CC BY-ND copyright license, and the Annual Reviews journal articles featured in Knowable Magazine are free to all for a limited period. We encourage others to republish our content, guidelines for which can be found here.

Knowable Magazine content is thoroughly researched, reported, edited, copy-edited and fact-checked. Review articles in Annual Review journals provide ideas, but editorial decisions and reporting decisions are made by the magazine staff, guided by what will best inform and intrigue readers. In this task they are guided by a Magazine Advisory Group, which includes leading journalists and communicators working in a variety of media. 

Knowable Magazine is supported by grants from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
