In response to demand from members, ICSTI Insights present in-depth analytical reviews of critical issues and events affecting the processes of scientific research and communication. The topics for each Insight are chosen by the ICSTI membership to ensure relevance and to reflect your priority interests and concerns. Each article is commissioned specifically with ICSTI member readership in mind and is designed to prompt interactive commentary between members.
Following the release of two pilot issues in mid 2008 ICSTI Insights was launched as a quarterly, e-only communiqué in January 2009. Members are encouraged to give feedback to the Secretariat on the value of ICSTI Insights and to suggest subjects for future coverage.
ICSTI Insights are produced solely for the benefit of members, but will now be made available in the public domain to non-members on a rolling basis three months after their original release.
