--------------------

I have to sadly admit that today's email prompted me to read the on-line version for the first time! I found three articles that are of direct current relevance to projects I'm involved with. I will now make reference to the resource in my work as an international science education consultant and add it to my list of useful websites for teachers.

--------------------

Make it more tangible and actionable.

--------------------

I stopped reading P&S when you had this incredible drivel on climate science by James Delingpole and Judith Curry. This was serious misinformation and I felt that I can't trust the information in P&S any more if your editorial team apparently is not able to spot politically motivated obvious distortions.

--------------------

P&S reads like a stitch up.  It makes me feel it is always pushing the line the government wants me to believe. It also seems to push lines convenient to big business

--------------------

It would be nice to see more approval of science and technology and less knocking.

--------------------

I know it's the British Science Association but it would be nice to hear of successful projects overseas that engage school children or the public in science.

--------------------

I’d like more debates on ethics and science.

--------------------

The forums and opportunities to conduct online surveys etc are informative.

--------------------

The formulation of science, technology and medicine policy in Parliament should be covered more fully and reports provides on particular debates in the Commons and Lords.

--------------------

I'm sorry that this will not continue in print as I often go back to it, refer to it or give to others in a way I don’t think I will do with the digital version.

--------------------

I often feel your articles don't go into enough depth.

--------------------

I think the content feels dated, the layout of the magazine is unappealing (primary-schoolish) and generally there are more interesting things that could be covered in a more engaging way. I always have a skim and maybe get tempted to read just one of the articles.

--------------------

Keep up the good work!

--------------------

I value People & Science as the only specialised news source (that I'm aware of) for science communication/science in society issues, and always make a point of reading it to help keep abreast of what's going on in the sector. It's nice and clear to read and well-presented.

--------------------

The design of the magazine is really uninviting.  For an organisation about communication, it's an incredibly dull looking publication.

--------------------

To improve it, I'd like to see more investigative features that provide an overview and critique of key issues, to get you thinking.

--------------------

I think People & Science is fantastic with really interesting and topical content.

--------------------

People & Science needs to consider regular, focused e-newsletters to readers with links to its own articles and features on line as well as links to other sources. Such a newsletter might provoke me to read the on-line journal. Inclusion of a specific P&S RSS feed would also be useful (not a generic BSA feed.)

--------------------

E-journals are boring. Reading on computers is bad for your back and is generally horrible. It is too much like work. I used to read the journal for information and pleasure but why on earth would I want to go and read it online?
