Join tens of thousands of scientists and engineers who keep in regular touch with the latest developments in software for science and technology and thus ensure their working environment is efficient and up to date. The magazine now includes HPC Projects, a section dedicated to the benefits of high-performance computing for science and engineering.


Scientific Computing World

  Launched in 1994, Scientific Computing World is sent six times a year at no cost to scientists, researchers, or engineers who rely on scientific computing in their daily work.

You can choose to receive the magazine in print (free in certain countries) or in digital format (free worldwide). Click here to see a sample digital issue.

Whether you work in industry, academia, or Government; whether you use computers at the lab bench or the latest in high-performance computing technology; you will find articles that interest you and help you with your work.


E-mailed direct to your inbox, SCnewsline provides a summary of the key news stories, latest product launches and upcoming events. This monthly newsletter reaches almost 17,000 scientists and engineers, keeping them in regular touch with breaking news and events in technology, research and the business world as it affects scientific computing.

Updated daily, this website carries web-exclusive material, including reviews of scientific software, that does not appear in either the print or newsline editions. Don’t forget to bookmark or set up an RSS feed from this site.
