— Ring­ing the changes in 2017

Cosmos - - Contents - Pub­lisher BILL CONDIE

THE PAST YEAR has been an ex­cit­ing one at Cos­mos, as we have con­tin­ued to de­velop new ways to bring you all the most im­por­tant and ex­cit­ing de­vel­op­ments in the world of science and tech­nol­ogy. We be­gan cov­er­ing daily news on our web­site and through our news­let­ters and so­cial me­dia chan­nels. We re­designed our web­site at cos­mos­magazine.com with en­hanced ca­pa­bil­i­ties to make the most of elec­tronic me­dia, and were hum­bled by the re­sponse, with five times more read­ers on­line than the year be­fore.

Be­cause we know ev­ery­one is dif­fer­ent, we look for many ways to keep our read­ers abreast of the lat­est de­vel­op­ments in science and tech­nol­ogy, whether that’s read­ing our web­site, on Face­book, through a daily feed di­rect to your in­box or via our pop­u­lar weekly news­let­ter, we aim to keep you in the loop through our lively but au­thor­i­ta­tive re­port­ing.

But even in this dig­i­tal age, print of­fers unique and won­der­ful ways to tell a story. Our print mag­a­zine re­mains im­por­tant to us and we are com­mit­ted to its fu­ture. But there are go­ing to be some changes. First, we de­cided to in­crease the size of the mag­a­zine while chang­ing our pub­lish­ing sched­ule to quar­terly. We be­lieve that by pro­duc­ing a larger mag­a­zine four times a year, we can bet­ter in­te­grate our print and dig­i­tal prod­ucts and en­hance your en­joy­ment of them.

Our quar­terly mag­a­zine will also bring you a wider range of science sto­ries, with more in­fo­graph­ics and graphical es­says that work so well in print to make com­plex science and tech­nol­ogy sto­ries ac­ces­si­ble.

And our val­ued print sub­scribers will not lose out in the change. Each ex­ist­ing sub­scriber will still re­ceive the re­main­ing num­ber of is­sues that they have signed up to and paid for on their ac­count. Those on a two-year print sub­scrip­tion will still re­ceive 12 is­sues and those on a one year print sub­scrip­tion will re­ceive six print edi­tions. Th­ese will be re­ceived over an ex­tended pe­riod with the new, im­proved and larger for­mat. Th­ese sub­scrip­tions will also con­tinue to in­clude a com­pli­men­tary dig­i­tal sub­scrip­tion with free ac­cess to all of Cos­mos’ fan­tas­tic on­line con­tent for a longer pe­riod to cor­re­late with the new ex­tended dates of their print sub­scrip­tion.

We will send fur­ther in­for­ma­tion about the changes shortly, but in the mean­time if you have any ques­tions at all, please don’t hes­i­tate to con­tact our team on 03 9829 0407 for Aus­tralian sub­scribers, +61 3 9829 0407 for in­ter­na­tional cus­tomers or at info@cos­mos­magazine.com

So thank you for your sup­port and, from ev­ery­one at Cos­mos, a happy and pros­per­ous 2017.
