Genetics, climate change, artificial intelligence, personalized medicine, space exploration… There are many scientific challenges facing today’s society. For this reason, the disclosure and reflection around them are more necessary than never.

Mètode is a magazine dedicated to the disclosure and to study of science. Published by the Universitat de València since 1992, now it is the publication of her no. 100 of Mètode.  Throughout its hundred publications, the journal has focused on analysing and disseminating the different aspects of scientific research, and has created an interaction space between sciences and humanities that allows the involvement of scientist but also artists, philosophers, sociologists, historians and men of letters. Proof of this are its covers, which have reunited some of the most prominent artists of the Valencian art scene to reflect on science and its progress. In these covers had participated Carmen Calvo, Manuel Boix, Rafael Armengol, Rosa Torres, José María Yturralde or Antoni Miró, among others. Science and art together to reflect on the challenges of the future.

Over the course its 100 no. of Mètode, Mètode has progressively broadened its sphere of operation. It was designed as an outreach magazine of the scientific task, but now it is reference of disclosure in Spain. The magazine had made an effort to incorporate national and international research firms, although the researches and the effort to informing them deployed by the Universitat de València are the principals.
