Skeptical Inquirer is the official journal of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry. On a bimonthly basis, Skeptical Inquirer publishes critical scientific evaluations of paranormal and fringe-science claims and informed discussion of all relevant issues. According to Editor Kendrick Frazier: "Skeptical Inquirer is an unusual hybrid, part semi-popular magazine, part scientific journal. It's fair to say that we not only help to cross disciplinary barriers within scientific fields but bridge the gaps between the hard and soft sciences and between science and the general public." Skeptical Inquirer has been called a "spokesman for rationality," serious but highly readable," "witty and informative," and a "steady buoy in the tumultuous sea of irrationality." Its contributors have included Isaac Asimov, Martin Gardner, Carl Sagan, Stephen Jay Gould, Richard Dawkins, and hundreds of other scholars and investigators worldwide. In addition to in-depth feature articles, special reports, up to date news and comment, book reviews and investigations on a wide variety of topics, Skeptical Inquirer has a stellar stable of regular columnists including Joe Nickell (“Investigative Files”), Massimo Polidoro (“Notes on a Strange World”), Massimo Pigluicci (“Thinking About Science”), Robert Sheaffer (“Psychic Vibrations”), and SI managing editor Benjamin Radford's reader-driven (“The Skeptical Inquiree”). -------------------- This is a free app download.

  • Buggy

    I really wanted this app to work well, but it was a massive battery drain and it also kept constantly giving me message that it “could not connect to network.“ I’m not quite sure if I will try to get my money back for the subscription, because I love the magazine.
  • Reason in a riotous world!

    By tommyradman1970
    I’m so glad there is a whole culture of secular, skeptical people out there promoting reason in the face of superstition, and Skeptical Inquirer makes me feel a part of it!
  • Required Reading for Every Human

    By VRR12345
    Every high school and university should require students to take a course that focuses on this publication. The world would be a better, more reasonable place.
  • Good stuff

  • Unable to restore purchases

    By Elbio_Wise
    After upgrading to the most recent app release, my past issue downloads are unavailable, and I am unable to download the latest issue. Trying Restore Purchases does nothing. I purchased a 1 year subscription through iTunes, but at this time, it appears to be worthless.
  • One of my favorite magazines in digital form

    By Niccomm757
    The only thing that would make this better would be if Skeptical Inquirer was published more frequently.

  • No articles are available

    They aren't kidding. You are just downloading a blank app. There isn't even a single preview article to read. Worthless.
