Travel to the Frontiers

Frontiers is a new online magazine highlighting science and people. Our aim is to find fresh ways of viewing existing territory and to look out to new horizons to be explored.

You’ll see links to various topics. Category takes you to Column, Making and Doing, People and Ideas, Going Further, Global Issues, Food Journeys, Arts & Crafts and Reviews.

Island View gives a link to Stories from the Islands, Archaeology & History, People Past and Present, and topics about the Countryside.

Our contributors are varied, with one feature in common, their association with the annual Orkney International Science Festival, from where this magazine is produced. Join us at the Frontiers!
