Science's leading position stems from many factors:
- the journal's strong tradition of editorial independence;
- its high standards of peer review and editorial quality (of the more than 12,000 top-notch scientific manuscripts that the journal sees each year, less than 8% are accepted for publication);
- its Board of Reviewing Editors, consisting of more than 100 of the world's top scientists;
- its strong connections with the scientific community, which ensures a stream of lively, up-to-date, and authoritative news and commentary in its pages;
- the dedication of its professional staff in the U.S., the U.K., and other countries, including 26 Ph.D. editors, a creative production and art group, and a team of science writers, reporters, and journalists second to none;
- the support of its publisher, AAAS, the world's largest general-science society.
Today, a century and a quarter after its founding, Science continues to publish the very best in scientific research, news, and opinion. Whether you're concerned with AIDS, SARS, genomic medicine, Mars, or global warming, or just want to keep abreast of where the scientific world is and where it's going, you will find something worthwhile in Science.
