Science (in The English. - “Science”) - The Journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (English. The American Association for the Advancement of Science - AAAS). It is considered one of the most respected scientific journals. The journal is peer-reviewed, published weekly, and has approximately 130,000 subscribers to the paper edition. Since the subscription of organizations and access via the Internet form a much larger audience, the number of its readers is estimated at one million people. [1].
Published in English. Based in Washington, DC, and Cambridge, England.

Science was founded in 1880 by New York journalist John Michaels with financial support from Thomas Edison and, later, Alexander Bell. However, the magazine was unable to collect a sufficient number of subscribers, and therefore it ceased to be published in March 1882. Entomologist Samuel Hubbard Scudder restored the magazine one year later. Science again faced financial hardship in 1894 and was sold to psychologist James McKeen Cattell for $ 500.
Under the agreement signed by Keitel and the AAAS administration, Science became the magazine of the American Development Assistance Association in 1900 science [2]. In the first quarter of the 20th century, Science published many important scientific works, such as articles on the genetics of fruit flies (Thomas Morgan), gravitational lensing (Albert Einstein), and spiral galaxies (Edwin Hubble) [3]. After Keitel’s death in 1944, the magazine completely switched to AAAS. 4 After Keitel’s death, the magazine had no editor for twelve years, until in 1956 he became Graham DuShane. The physicist Philip Hauge Abelson, one of the pioneers of Neptune, was the editor of the journal from 1962 to 1984. During his management, the effectiveness of peer review was improved, which led to the acceleration of the publication of new materials [5]. Over the years, in particular, articles on the Apollo program and one of the first reports on AIDS were published. [6]
Biochemist Daniel Koshland worked as editor from 1985 to 1995. From 1995 to 2000, this position was held by the neuroscientist Floyd Bloom.
In 2000, the biologist Donald Kennedy became the editor of Science. In March 2008, his place was taken by biochemist Bruce Alberts [7].
In 2009, he entered the list of 100 most influential journals in biology and medicine over the past 100 years under No. 3, and in the section “Molecular and Cellular” biology, biotechnology and interdisciplinary journals ”- under No. 1.
Access
Full-text versions of articles are available online for AAAS members through the magazine’s main website. AAAS members have full access to the journal’s archive over the years on the Science website, where it is called Science Classic. External subscribers can order access to Science Classic for an additional fee.
Individual and collective subscription also gives you the opportunity to read original articles (this is cheaper than membership in AAAS). The Science website provides free access to some publications (some original studies and editorial columns), as well as to the table of contents of all issues in the archive.
Access to all articles that were published no more than 5 years ago is free on the Science website, if the request is sent from the subscriber’s IP address.
Issues of a magazine older than 5 years old are also available by subscription via JSTOR [8]. Criticism of 2013 Nobel laureate in medicine Randy Sheckman, when presenting him the prize, stated that the presenters scientific journals, including Science, interfere with scientific process, as the desire to see its publication in leading journals encourages scientists to "cut corners" and to do what is considered fashionable, and not what is more important for science. In addition, according to Shekman, the problem is that the editors of these journals are not scientists, but publishers and they are primarily interested in hype, sensation and sensation. He promised not to submit his articles to Nature, Cell and Science magazines anymore. [9]
