Press release issued: 14 October 2011

Bristol University students, both past and present, are behind the most popular student-run online news magazine in the country.

Erudition began as a print publication but has evolved into a collection of three magazine-style websites, each covering the broad topics of the economy, politics, science, engineering, arts and culture.

The websites receive 80,000 unique visitors each month and are popular around the world thanks to their no nonsense style and thought-provoking debates on national and international news.

The latest addition to the online series is Experimentation, which covers the latest news and views on the world of science and engineering.

It has just been launched by editor-in-chief Alistair Jacklin, who has worked hard with his news team over the last six months to create the website.

The former Biochemistry student said: “Our aim is to provide the best articles on science and engineering that will engage everyone’s interest. 

“At Bristol University we have some of the best science and engineering students in the country, so we’ve tapped into this knowledge and have also recruited former students who have gone on to study PhDs elsewhere.

“Many of us are carrying out cutting edge research in a wide range of fields, which allows us to bring up-to-date news straight from the lab or workbench onto the pages of Experimentation.”

The websites, which are updated with new editions each month, actively promote debate through its news and in-depth features.

  • Erudition covers subject areas readers might expect to see in the Economist, discussing politics, the economy and other hot topics on the national and international news agenda.
  • Intuition is a lifestyle and culture magazine, looking at arts, books, music, film and fashion.
  • Experimentation is similar in content to the New Scientist, discussing major news from the world of science and engineering.
