Who we are

Published by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP), the Pesquisa FAPESP magazine was launched in October 1999 for the primary purpose of disseminating and promoting the results of Brazilian scientific and technological output, of which FAPESP is one of the most important research sponsoring agencies.

It is the only Brazilian magazine specialized in science and technology that focuses primarily on domestic scientific output while also covering international news on a timely basis. It serves as a point of contact and continuous recognition for Brazilian researchers as well as an indispensable reference for science and technology editors of Brazil’s major media outlets.

Pesquisa FAPESP has a current circulation of 23,900 and it is the offshoot of the FAPESP Notícias Newsletter. What began as a free newsletter distributed to researchers in the state of São Paulo, science and technology policymakers and journalists in August 1995, four years later became a magazine.

Since March 2002, in addition to distribution to a select group of subsidized subscribers in the researcher community, Pesquisa FAPESP also has paid subscribers, accepts advertising and is sold at newsstands throughout the state of São Paulo and in other principal Brazilian cities.

On-line Issue – The Pesquisa FAPESP website offers all articles published in the magazine, from issue no. 1 to the most recent, in their entirety. English and Spanish translations of the magazine articles are also available on the website. The foreign language versions of the materials are made available as their translations are completed.

The Pesquisa FAPESP website also publishes news about science and technology produced specifically for the digital medium, in addition to videos and photo galleries that often complement the content of the printed issue.

All website content is open access and free of charge.

We welcome your suggestions and comments about both the online version and the printed magazine. Simply send an email to the editorial staff (cartas@fapesp.br). You may also follow the magazine on Twitter (http://twitter.com/PesquisaFapesp) and Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/PesquisaFapesp)
