This document was complied by Suzanne de Cheveigné (suzanne.de-cheveigne@univmed.fr) in May 2011 from elements sent in by subscribers to the PCST list in response to a query concerning "semi-professional" science magazines, i.e. the ones scientists would read in their countries (but that are not academic journals). In some cases, the table contains information on all science magazines. Indicated in bold are the magazine(s) widely read by scientists. This table will be updated as further information arrives.

There are other magazines about science yet I would not consider them exclusively about science, since they also deal with curiosity, culture, sometimes pseudo-science, but they are popular science magazines. Which are:

- Superinteressante: http://super.abril.com.br/

- Galileo: http://revistagalileu.globo.com/

- GEO: http://revistageo.uol.com.br/

- Conhecer: http://revistaconhecer.uol.com.br/
