Our editor-in-chief, Dr. Michael Shermer, has been called the most prominent skeptic in America. His numerous books and media appearances, as well as his 214 monthly columns in Scientific American have made Skeptic magazine a respected voice.
The magazine has been called “stimulating and provocative” by Carl Sagan, “clearly superior…gutsy” by Edward O. Wilson, and “the best journal in the field” by Stephen Jay Gould. The magazine includes lively and thought-provoking articles, debates, book reviews, and essays from leading scientists, scholars, investigative journalists, historians, professors, and teachers.
Bound within each issue of Skeptic is Junior Skeptic magazine. While written for younger readers, it provides an outstanding summary of classical paranormal topics, and is one of the favorite parts of the magazine for adults as well. Its editor, Daniel Loxton, recently won Canada’s prestigious Best Science Book Award for Young Readers.
