New Scientist magazine was created "for all those men and women who are interested in scientific discovery, and in its industrial, commercial and social consequences". The brand's mission is no different today—New Scientist reports, explores and interprets the results of human endeavor set in the context of society and culture. 

An expert team of writers explores key developments in at least four feature-length articles in every issue. Regular sections include interviews with high-profile personalities, essays, book reviews and bestseller lists. The Frontiers section focuses on emerging technologies and insightful Editorial comment. Feedback adds quirky stories from the world of science and beyond. The Last Word includes questions and answers on everyday scientific phenomena sent in by the readers and the razor-sharp political wit of the Westminster and Washington Diaries.
