The magazine about research that makes people LAUGH, then THINK.

Real research, about anything and everything, from everywhere. Research that's maybe good or bad, important or trivial, valuable or worthless. Compiled for you, by the producers of the Ig Nobel Prize ceremony..

Six new issues every year, published in two forms:


NEWS ABOUT THE FUTURE: April 2015: We are going to gradually (no rush!) phase out the paper version of the magazine, and phase in PDFs.

We intend to keep producing the paper version for a while (maybe a year, maybe longer), while we find and test a truly good way to sell the PDF version. After we have a good PDF-sales system in place, and have seen that it really does work well, we will present some nice options to everyone who is subscribing to the paper version.

Read all about why we are doing this, and what it means.




About the E-book version: This is the first picture-filled magazine available as a series of standard e-books, comfy on both tiny (phone) and big screens:

Issues Available as PDFs

Some older issues are available as high-quality PDFs. PDFs are good for reading on big screens, or for printing out - but they're not comfy to read on tiny screens (mobile phones). We plan to make e-book versions of these issues.
