The editors of Scientific American magazine chose five web sites to receive its 2003 Sci/Tech Web Awards in Biology. ActionBioscience.org was one of them. They describe the site as follows:
An educational cornucopia of articles covering biodiversity, environment, genomics, biotechnology, evolution, new frontiers (biowarfare, genetic transplantation and other cutting-edge research) and education. This straightforward site serves as a reliable bibliography, containing thousands of full, annotated papers by the world’s most esteemed scientists, plus classroom materials—each article is even correlated to the U.S. National Science Education Standards so teachers will have no problem working the site’s massive databases into their curricula. Be sure to sign up for regular email updates to receive notice each time new developments are made to the site.
Scientific American, the oldest continuously published magazine in the U.S., has been bringing its readers insights about developments in science and technology for over 150 years. Articles have been written by more than 120 Nobel laureates as well as other esteemed scientists. The magazine publishes 15 foreign language editions and has a total of more than 1,000,000 copies in circulation worldwide. In March 1996, it launched its own web site, which houses downloadable issues of the magazine from 1993 to the present, a bookstore, and much more.
