Advertising Policy

Science Trend’s mission is to be a bridge between scientists and the general public by allowing scientists to share their knowledge, experience, and research with you. In order to do this, Science Trends relies on funding from our advertisers in order to enhance your experience at Science Trends and allow us to cover our operating costs.

Science Trends remains unbiased as advertisers and advertisements in no way compromise our editorial autonomy. Other than input about broad topic areas, we never allow sponsors to influence the content we create.

We wanted to create a policy documenting how Science Trends uses advertising, where, and with what networks. At this time, Science Trends displays Google Adsense and Outbrain advertisements. Science Trends does not have any paid links, affiliate links, or paid guest posts (branded content).
