Funding Public Understanding of Science
This month the MIT Press launches a new Public Understanding of Science initiative, which will support our efforts to mobilize cutting edge science and research for greater social impact through writing excellence. By providing academic scientists and first-time book authors with the support needed to make their ideas optimally impactful and accessible to general readers, policy makers, and the media, we create a platform to build a public understanding of science.
New releases for March
This month: a concise history of fertility tools and their ethical and social implications, an exploration of how human behavior brought the world to the brink—and how it can save us, a study of how technology reinforces inequality, and more.

The MIT Press announces new initiative to flip existing subscription-based journals to a diamond open access publishing model. shift+OPEN will catalyze needed change in journals publishing and increase the reach of academic scholarship. shift+OPEN is generously supported by the Arcadia Fund.

Dissect the brain through the topics below, including the concepts of memory, critical thinking, and synesthesia.
