The major focus of the journal is publishing important original scientific research and research reviews, but Science also publishes science-related news, opinions on science policy and other matters of interest to scientists and others who are concerned with the wide implications of science and technology. Unlike most scientific journals, which focus on a specific field, Science and its rival Nature cover the full range of scientific disciplines. According to the Journal Citation Reports, Science{{'}}s 2015 impact factor was 34.661.BOOK, 2016, Science, 2015 Journal Citation Reports, Thomson Reuters, Science, Web of Science, Journal Citation Reports, Although it is the journal of the AAAS, membership in the AAAS is not required to publish in Science. Papers are accepted from authors around the world. Competition to publish in Science is very intense, as an article published in such a highly cited journal can lead to attention and career advancement for the authors. Fewer than 7% of articles submitted are accepted for publication.Science is based in Washington, D.C., United States, with a second office in Cambridge, UK.


(File:Science 1883 Cover.png|thumb|left|alt=cover of the first volume of the resurrected journal (February–June 1883)|Cover of the first volume of the resurrected journal (February–June 1883))Science was founded by New York journalist John Michels in 1880 with financial support from Thomas Edison and later from Alexander Graham Bell.JOURNAL, 7 February 1947, Thomas A. Edison and the Founding of Science: 1880, Science, 105, 2719, 142–148, 10.1126/science.105.2719.142, 17813458, a weekly journal devoted mainly to physical science and invention, entitled Science, and Mr. [A. Graham] Bell purchased from Mr. John Michels for $5,000 the title and good will of this journal. Continuity of the publication was not, however, maintained, and the present journal [Science] dates from 1883. Mr. Thomas A. Edison had been responsible for the foundation of the earlier Science, BOOK, Grosvenor, Edwin S, Wesson, Morgan, 13 May 2016, Alexander Graham Bell, New Word City, 978-1612309842, In 1881, the old rivalry between Bell and Thomas Edison spilled over into the field of publishing. Science Magazine had been founded the year before with funding from Edison, but the frugal inventor soon tired of the deficits and withheld support. Bell had written for the magazine and respected its editorial quality. He felt that Science, like the British Nature, appealed to a broad audience interested in current research. In 1882, he and Gardiner Hubbard acquired the rights to Science and hired as editor a respected young entomologist and riter named Sam Scudder, who happened to be a Hubbard cousin., (Edison received favorable editorial treatment in return, without disclosure of the financial relationship, at a time when his reputation was suffering due to delays producing the promised commercially viable light bulb.BOOK, American Eclipse, David Baron, 2017, Liveright, 224, 9781631490163, ) However, the journal never gained enough subscribers to succeed and ended publication in March 1882. Entomologist Samuel H. Scudder resurrected the journal one year later and had some success while covering the meetings of prominent American scientific societies, including the AAAS.AAAS, "150 Years of Advancing Science: A History of AAAS. Origins: 1848–1899", 2004 However, by 1894, Science was again in financial difficulty and was sold to psychologist James McKeen Cattell for $500.{{fact|date=May 2018}} In an agreement worked out by Cattell and AAAS secretary Leland O. Howard, Science became the journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 1900.AAAS, "150 Years of Advancing Science: A History of AAAS. AAAS and Science: 1900–1940", 2004 During the early part of the 20th century important articles published in Science included papers on fruit fly genetics by Thomas Hunt Morgan, gravitational lensing by Albert Einstein, and spiral nebulae by Edwin Hubble.WEB,weblink 150 Years of Advancing Science: A History of AAAS. AAAS and Science: 1900–1940, American Association for the Advancement of Science, August 27, 2006, After Cattell died in 1944, the ownership of the journal was transferred to the AAAS.WEB,weblink Online Exhibits, American Association for the Advancement of Science, August 27, 2006, After Cattell's death in 1944, the journal lacked a consistent editorial presence until Graham DuShane became editor in 1956. In 1958, under DuShane's leadership, Science absorbed The Scientific Monthly, thus increasing the journal's circulation by over 60% from 38,000 to more than 61,000.WEB,weblink 150 Years of Advancing Science: A History of AAAS. AAAS and the Maturing of American Science: 1941–1970, American Association for the Advancement of Science, October 3, 2013, Physicist Philip Abelson, a co-discoverer of neptunium, served as editor from 1962 to 1984. Under Abelson the efficiency of the review process was improved and the publication practices were brought up to date. During this time, papers on the Apollo program missions and some of the earliest reports on AIDS were published.WEB,weblink 150 Years of Advancing Science: A History of AAAS. Change and Continuity: 1971 to the Present, American Association for the Advancement of Science, August 27, 2006, Biochemist Daniel E. Koshland, Jr. served as editor from 1985 until 1995.

Holt, Jr., chief executive officer of the AAAS and executive publisher of Science, stated that the journal was becoming increasingly international: "[I]nternationally co-authored papers are now the norm—they represent almost 60 percent of the papers. In 1992, it was slightly less than 20 percent."JOURNAL,weblink Science and Diplomacy, June 29, 2015, Scientific Drivers for Diplomacy, Rush, Holt,

Family of journals

The Science family of journals includes Science, Science Translational Medicine, Science Signaling, and Science Advances. In 2015, Holt announced another expansion: Science Robotics and Science Immunology would begin publication in mid-2016.PRESS RELEASE, AAAS to Expand the Science Family of Journals by Launching Two New Journals: Science Robotics and Science Immunology, Pinholster, Ginger, October 20, 2015, American Association for the Advancement of Science,weblink November 17, 2015,


The latest editions of the journal are available online, through the main journal website, only to subscribers, AAAS members, and for delivery to IP addresses at institutions that subscribe; students, K–12 teachers, and some others can subscribe at a reduced fee. However, research articles published after 1997 are available for free (with online registration) one year after they are published i.e. delayed open access. Significant public-health related articles are also available for free, sometimes immediately after publication. AAAS members may also access the pre-1997 Science archives at the Science website, where it is called "Science Classic". Institutions can opt to add Science Classic to their subscriptions for an additional fee. Some older articles can also be accessed via JSTOR and ProQuest.The journal also participates in initiatives that provide free or low-cost access to readers in developing countries, including HINARI, OARE, AGORA, and features of the Science website include the free "ScienceNow" section with "up to the minute news from science",WEB,weblink ScienceNow, September 1, 2011, Science, and "ScienceCareers", which provides free career resources for scientists and engineers.
