SciLine is hosted by and receives in-kind support from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest general scientific society.
A nonprofit founded in 1848, AAAS is the publisher of the journal Science as well as Science Translational Medicine, Science Signaling, Science Advances (a digital, open-access journal), Science Robotics, and Science Immunology. It includes some 250 affiliated societies and academies of science, serving 10 million individuals. It is open to all and fulfills its mission to “advance science and serve society” through initiatives in science policy, international programs, science education, public engagement, and more.
SciLine is philanthropically funded
SciLine depends on the support of philanthropic institutions committed to the cause of open and accurate communication between scientists, journalists, and the public. These supporters recognize the foundational importance of having reliably derived evidence at the table for policy discussions and decision making. Generous founding support for SciLine has been provided by the Quadrivium Foundation, with additional funding from the Rita Allen Foundation, the Heinz Endowments, and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
SciLine is editorially independent from its funders and from AAAS’s business operations, including Science magazine and EurekAlert!, AAAS’s science news-release distribution service.
