About us

Scientific Computing World is the only global publication dedicated to the computing and information technology needs of professionals working in science, technology, engineering, and medicine. Published in print and electronic media, it covers all aspects of computing for engineering, science, technology and medicine.

High-performance computing is central to the publication, with a special dedicated section in the print magazine, and a separate website and e-newsletter devoted to HPC.

Already respected for its impartial, expert editorial content, the publication will benefit over the next two years from a programme of investment in editorial resources and improvements in the design, both of the print product and the website.

Scientific Computing World (print and digital magazine)
In 2014, the print magazine Scientific Computing World enters its 21st year of publication, underlining its position as the market-leading title in this key sector. To enhance the print magazine, a digital version is now also available. As a result the geographical extent of the magazine's circulation has expanded so that it is now the only truly global publication in this field.


SCnewsline is a monthly e-mailed newsletter that keeps thousands of scientists and engineers in regular touch with breaking news and events in technology, research, and the business world as it affects scientific computing. It reaches nearly 17,000 recipients every month.


Our website, www.scientific-computing.com, is increasingly popular with visitor numbers climbing month by month. It carries web-exclusive material, including reviews of scientific software, and is updated on a daily basis.

In all media, Scientific Computing World reports on and analyses the application of computing to science, technology and medicine, focusing on engineering, design, research, development, testing, and laboratory analysis (including QA/QC). The publications carry news, comment, feature articles, product news, and the website is particularly known for its authoritative software reviews – especially in the areas of maths/stats software. All media also cover Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), and computing in engineering, chemistry, physics, and life sciences.

The Scientific Computing World family of titles thus does not deal with developments in computer science or technology per se, but with the use of computers and information technology to make science and engineering faster, easier, and cheaper.

Editorial policy

Scientific Computing World is a magazine, not an academic or research journal, meaning we publish feature articles and not research papers etc. Our general policy for feature articles is that they are all written in-house or by one of our regular freelance contributors, and we do not accept by-lined features from suppliers, PR companies and so on. Those seeking editorial coverage in a feature should consult the editorial features list (in our Media Pack) and contact the editor accordingly.

The editor regularly sends out an email a few weeks’ prior to editorial deadlines with more details of the features in an upcoming issue and how to get involved. If you would like to be included on the distribution of this email, please contact the editor at editor.scw@europascience.com.

Relevant news and product press releases are welcomed and should be sent by email only to editor.scw@europascience.com, and to no other address. Any material submitted is included solely at the editor’s discretion, and may be edited for length and style. Our own editorial house style may differ from your own. Spellings are British and not American English. We also adopt English typography. Thus it is our style to place product or company names in lower case with an initial capital - so a product called THE BETTER MOUSETRAP will appear in our publications as The Better Mousetrap. Any material is included at the discretion of the editor. We do not offer editorial material for client approval prior to publication.

Any images supplied are assumed to have no copyright restrictions and may be published without credit unless explicitly specified.
