To celebrate Nature's new impact factor of 36.280, Nature is offering a 1-year personal multi-access subscription for $36 (or 36 euro, or 36 UK$ depending on location):

nature.com/dec36

(Not available in Asia)

For the price you get 51 issues in print, online papers, full access in their iPad and iPhone app (otherwise subscription required) and occasional journal supplemental booklets/special issues.

This is one of the best price I've seen at 82% off. Even if you have institutional subscription through work/university, the copies make excellent coffee table material. Original price is $200 per year, or $99 for student, $119 for postdoc.

*The above link says valid until Oct 2012 but the postcard I just received says offer ends in January, 2013. Just placed an order without a problem.

Update Jan 29th: received a promotion email about the same $36 deal with a new link, it now says valid until March 2013:

You can immediately renew for a second year for $36 as well.

After you complete the order, go to your account page. Then go to the subscriptions tab. It should list your 1 year sub with a link to Renew.

I have a Jan 5 2015 exp now. (credit guruguru)


It looks like you can renew an infinite amount of times. Just stay logged into your account and click the main link and it will offer to renew instead of a new sub.


Nothing like getting 3 years of Nature in print for the regular price of the student edition. (credit saros)


Update: Renewal doesn't work any more.

update feb 22: renewal just worked; I put the code "DECBDM6" into the coupon box

are you sure this includes print version. The subscription page says print and online but doesnt say print versions in 'subscription includes'. It would also defeat their goal of reducing eco footprint to include print copies. I would call to check except that they are closed for the weekend.
Yes it says "Print and Online" with original price of $200 on the order page. Also Nature sells only two types of personal subscriptions: Online only vs print and online. If it doesn't specifically say "Online only" it definitely has print.

Also, just to remind you the first rule about a slickdeal:

DO NOT CALL

Just curious, does this magazine offer layman easy to understand stuff or more deeper scientific matter?

A lot of it is very much deeper scientific. It's aimed primarily at the very science literate crowd such as researchers. They typically have summaries to tailor it to people who are not specialists in that field, however it assumes a working knowledge of a broad range of a fields.Your best bet is to stop at a library or university with a subscription and just check it out to get an idea. A lot of the journal is actual papers so fairly technical.

The first 1/3 of articles in each issue are layman's stuff: news analysis and pop-science'ish reports. The rest, I can simply put it this way: if you don't know what Impact Factor is right off your head, you probably won't enjoy them. Most are research reports from all scientific disciplines, very high quality reports I might add. These will be pure music in the ears of the characters in those Big Bang Theory. If you are not sure, head here to preview the content in an issue. If you scroll down to the ARTICLES and LETTERS sections at the bottom, they show a small paragraph summarizing each article:

AKA a bunch of nerds.

This is nothing worth subscribing to. If you read these articles then chances are you work for an institution that provides you a free subscription anyway.

And for those that don't know what an "impact factor" is:
it tells one nerd how many times other nerds give nerd credit to his or her idea.

rofl, this deal would be posted by someone whose username is "nanotube".

Also if you haven't heard of Nature until now, this "magazine" (technically it's a journal) is NOT for you.

Sweet deal but still a little spend.y No wonder the sciences are dying in the U.S. when you can get a dozen freebie magazines full of Kardashians and Beebers is it any wonder the average mans reading selection is dumbed down to dirt?

Anyway in for 1. My kids aent gonna be unlearnt!

I've heard of the magazine, but I've never really looked into the content. Does it only publish bio/physics articles, or any research article that vaguely falls under some sort of science?

You can read the front 1/3 of the magazine and the special sections and get a nice overview of developments in science/medicine/etc. The back 2/3 is research papers that are generally over the heads of most people outside the field of science. I enjoy it for what I get out of it. I get it for free from redtag.org but I would consider subscribing if I didn't already receive it.

Don't know if you are just trying to be funny....

And from your response you probably don't know what impact factor is on top of your head...citation count is not exactly the same as impact factor
