Traffic peaks are observed every time we release a new Special Issue, as it is accompanied by an extensive marketing and distribution effort through traditional and social media networks.


EuroScientist’s audience comprises researchers from all over Europe, and beyond. They are typically representing all levels of the scientific hierarchy, ranging from early-stage researchers, including PhD students, to postdocs and confirmed scientists.

We also have a readership of professionals with an interest in science, who are often science graduates who do not hold scientific positions.

EuroScientist is also read by policy-makers – in Brussels and in national governments, in Europe and further afield – and all those actively involved in science policy or showing a strong interest in this field.

EuroScientist has evolved tremendously since its relaunch in February 2013. We are developing the webzine building a long-term strategy that allows us to grow our number of loyal visitors on a steady basis. The quality of our audience stems from the fact that they are highly targeted, and highly qualified.
