New Scientist is a weekly non-peer-reviewed English-language international science magazine,[2] founded in 1956 and since 1996 also runs a website, covering recent developments in science and technology for a general audience.

The magazine covers current developments, news, and commentary from the scientific community. It also prints speculative articles, ranging from the technical to the philosophical. There is a readers’ letters section which discusses recent articles, and discussion on the website.



Discover is an American science magazine that publishes articles about science for a general audience. The monthly magazine was launched in October 1980 by Time Inc. It was sold to Family Media, the owners of Health, in 1987. The Walt Disney Company bought the magazine when Family Media went out of business in 1991. In October 2005 Discover was sold to two media investment companies. Bob Guccione, Jr., founder of Spin and Gear magazines, served as CEO for the first two years, followed by Henry Donahue. It was sold to Kalmbach Publishing in 2010, and the current editor-in-chief as of December 2012 is Stephen C. George.


Digit is an Indian monthly technology magazine published by 9.9 Media. According to the Indian Readership Survey (IRS 2011) it has a circulation of about 1,00,000 and a readership of over 2,49,000.[citation needed] The same survey results suggest that it is the most read technology magazine in India,[1] higher than even the combined readership of its peers (e.g., Chip, PC Quest, T3, etc.). It is circulated in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and some other countries. It was started in 2001 by Jasubhai Digital Media Pvt. Ltd and acquired by 9.9 Media in 2007.[2]

Each issue of Digit includes a magazine, two dual-layer DVDs and a mini-booklet called Fast Track.

The detail in the Fast Track series ranges from the beginner to the intermediate and often with references to advanced content.

Every issue we showcase a selection of the world’s best wildlife watching experiences, plus we have wildlife destination guides, field guides to individual species, wildlife photography workshops, kit reviews, expert travel advice and the latest wildlife and conservation news. Working alongside many of the most respected writers, photographers and tour operators in the business, it’s our mission to show you that you don’t need to be an adrenaline-fuelled adventurer or a member of a wildlife documentary crew to enjoy many of nature’s greatest spectacles first hand.

Throughout each genre and niche area of magazine publication, there is wide variety of creative approaches and subject matter used to create a visual narrative. For many, there is an emphasis towards portraiture, both studio and/or on location depending upon the individual editorial content of the magazine. For me, my personal interests are towards publications using the natural world as a subject; travel, environmental and wildlife. However,  I believe some of the most striking and visually interesting images were motion/action shots used often in sports magazines to reinforce a sense of place and time. With editorial images, there seems to be a great deal of importance in size, format, spacing and overall design, it is important that the images effectively communicate your idea but also work aesthetically alongside other images, design elements or text.
