What type of content does NSF Science360 use?
NSF Science360 News focuses on the latest developments in scientific research funded by NSF. Sections such as "Photo of the Day" may reference scientific research supported by other funding sources, including government agencies, not-for-profit organizations and private industry. We do not publish stories about grant awards or meeting announcements. We do our best to provide news about a variety of scientific research areas on a daily basis.

How can I find previous stories I saw featured on the website?

To search for other content, use the search box located in the upper right-hand corner. You can also view a list of previous issues by clicking on the "Past Issues" link located beneath "News Home" in the top left corner.

Why don't you link directly to full news stories from the e-mail I receive?
The email that is sent out does not include all of the content on the NSF Science360 News website. If we bypassed the website, readers would miss out on these additional stories. In addition, there are many readers who do not receive the daily email and prefer to go directly to our site for content. It serves as a landing page for people to see what's new and interesting in science without having to comb through various sites on their own.
