Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of the state of research regarding magazine coverage of science- and technology-related topics and issues. International in scope, it surveys empirical and cultural works that examine how science and technology topics have been discussed, presented and portrayed in popular and special magazines that target general or niche audiences. It also canvasses works that analyze the impact of these portrayals on individuals and societies. From a synthesis of findings and observations, suggestions for further investigation are offered and challenges and opportunities for expansion are drawn.
