For more than 20 years, the Association of Science and Technology Centers has published its award-winning magazine, Dimensions. The magazine, which has its roots in the ASTC Newsletter that started back at the origin of ASTC, has published articles that offer a mix of in-depth analysis, interviews, and briefs of noteworthy events and resources for the science center and museum field—and those with an interest in public engagement in science more generally.
In recent years, in addition to the print magazine, ASTC began offering a digital version for subscribers. To ensure this valuable content is as widely available as possible to our community, we are transitioning Dimensions to a fully online publication. Readers can expect the same high-quality content featuring valuable insights into trends, practices, innovations, and crucial issues affecting the field, as well as practical solutions shared among institutions.
Right now, new Dimensions content can be found on the ASTC blog alongside a robust collection of past features from the magazine. In the future, ASTC will build out the Dimensions corner of the ASTC website with online offerings to include complete, downloadable versions of past issues while continuing to publish new articles. No longer bound by the print format, we also hope to expand our offerings to include more video, audio, and graphics.
In addition to finding Dimensions content on our blog, articles will be highlighted in , ASTC’s biweekly member newsletter. If you are not already subscribed to the newsletter, please sign up today. All staff members at ASTC-member organizations are encouraged to subscribe, as Informer is a member benefit and the best way to stay up-to-date on resources shared by members of our community, information about upcoming events, funding opportunities, and more.
We invite all members of the ASTC community to submit proposals for Dimensions. Please contact us for details about requirements, the review process, or with any questions about submitting a proposal.
