— Ringing the changes in 2017
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
So thank you for your support and, from everyone at Cosmos, a happy and prosperous 2017.
