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:

Wow. We do get this at our library but I couldn't pass it at this price. Getting it in the mailbox is better than going to the library. Thanks.

Awesome deal, but in all honesty I'm not sure why most people would buy it. Those who are interested in Nature are usually going to be students/postdocs/faculty in academia who already have access to online Nature through their university. It's really not a layman's magazine and even professors in the prime of their career won't fully understand half of the articles because they will be fairly far from their area of expertise. The articles are required to be short (compared to other academic journals) so every sentence is impactful, making them fairly dense reads. The title and the abstract is probably as far as most people get (including those in academia).

Anyway, that's just my two cents.

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?
As others pointed out, this is technically a journal. The research articles are too technical for the general audience. However, about one third of the magazine is quite general and sometimes, some articles can be quite interesting even if you don't understand everything about them. For example, I remember reading an article about how to tie a tie, and if you look at the detail, you will get the idea.

I'm a student and just started working in a lab on campus--I'm used to research articles, I was just wondering about the content Smilie. Since I'm not majoring in physics, obscure articles pertaining to the Higgs boson would probably go over my head. But yeah, I don't think this is for me lol.

Odds are that your university already pays for access to Nature, so you can read the full research articles online from your campus.

Wot? You obviously haven't tried the "do you want to come back to my place to see my collection of Nature journals" line. Works every time!

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.

Great deal! I was biased towards Science when I was younger but always recognized NATURE as the superior journal.

Good deal to expand one's vocabulary and to impress others with terminology!

Interesting to see this FP. Nature is definitely not a "regular publication." But I guess some people like to buy this magazine for a coffee table magazine?..That's some heavy reading laugh out loud

If you take the time to look up terms, maybe. But I've found that often times, terms are not even explained in these articles.
