Skeptic magazine examines extraordinary claims, revolutionary ideas, promotes critical thinking, and serves as an educational tool for those seeking a sound scientific viewpoint. Each issue examines a specific theme and explores various social, scientific, and paranormal controversies. We investigate claims of the paranormal, pseudoscience, fringe groups, cults and claims between: science, pseudoscience, junk science, voodoo science, pathological science, bad science, non science and plain old nonsense. Our contributors are top experts in their fields—leading scientists, scholars, and investigative journalists. The magazine has been called “stimulating and provocative" by Carl Sagan, “clearly superior…gutsy” by Edward O. Wilson, and “the best journal in the field” by Stephen Jay Gould. Our editor-in-chief, Dr. Michael Shermer, has been called the most prominent skeptic in America, and his monthly column in Scientific American, and his numerous books and media appearances have made Skeptic a respected voice in academia. Included in each issue of Skeptic is Junior Skeptic magazine. While written for younger readers, it provides an outstanding summary of classical paranormal topics, and is one of the favorite parts of the magazine for adults as well. Its editor, Daniel Loxton, recently won Canada’s prestigious Best Science Book Award for Young Readers.

Well explained articles
They go to the trouble to dig into the subjects related to pseudoscience and expose the tools charlatans use against us. A valuable source of info.
Great to have the digital version
Since I read nearly everything on my iPad or phone, the digital version of this journal makes reading the it much more accessible. I can easily read it in bed with even with the lamp turned off.
I also appreciate the Reader view feature that turns an article into a single long page for scrolling.
The only most important feature missing for me is a highlighter. When I read non-fiction I always want to annotate what I'm reading for later review. It's great that the app allows for copying and pasting selected text, but a highlighter is also needed.
Skeptic is great, the app is not
The reader mode on the Skeptic app is mediocre at best. It changes article formatting in confusing ways and has typos that are not present in the magazine. The app developer has not issued an update in over a year. Does this mean that they think the app is already perfect?
