You expect unbiased, thought-provoking, and well-researched science. And we couldn’t agree more.
Science Trends empowers scientists to share the thrill of scientific discovery.
Science Trends was founded in July of 2017 as a platform to give scientists a voice to share the latest scientific discoveries. We provide an avenue for scientists in academia and industry to connect with more than half a million science-minded people.
To date, we’ve worked with thousands of scientists from across the world share their work on everything from artificial intelligence to cancer research.
Science Trends was started in 2017 by Trevor Nace, a Ph.D. geologist eager to explore the world and communicate science to new and unexpected audiences. For nearly 3 years he’s written about everything from earthquakes to climate change as he covers earth and environmental science on Forbes, connecting with over 20 million people.
Through his experience in science communication, he became increasingly aware and motivated to help scientists around the globe share their work and advocate for science.
Operating costs for Science Trends are funded by both advertising and through investments from the founder, Trevor Nace.
We are not backed by institutional investors, banks, or other private or public entities. This allows us to control our business model in connecting scientists and their research with the world.
Science Trends has worked with over 3,000 authors from around the globe to help you learn about the latest scientific research.
We pride ourselves in our ability to present expertly crafted content from the people who know best. Below is a curated list of our science writers.
Science Trends follows a core set of editorial and publishing policies as outlined here.
