《新科学家》New Scientist创刊于1956年，周刊。 它是一个自由的国际化科学杂志，内容关于最近的科技发展，网站开始于1996年，登载每天的关于科技界的新闻。杂志并非是一个经过同行评议的科学杂志，但被科学家和非科学家广为传阅，杂志还经常刊登一些评论，比如气候变化等环境问题。
It is not a peer-reviewed scientific journal, but it is widely read by both scientists and non-scientists, as a way of keeping track of developments outside their own fields of study or areas of interest. Many science articles in the general press are based on its contents. The magazine also regularly includes features, news and commentary on environmental issues, such as climate change.
Based in London, New Scientist has U.S. and Australian editions as well as a British edition.
