Mètode: A magazine to think about science
The Mètode magazine, published by the UV and directed by the biologist and journalist Martí Domínguez, was born in 1992 and nowadays it is among the main scientific dissemination publications. Throughout her 25 years of life, Mètode has maintained its commitment with the disclosure of science through the quarterly edition in Catalan and Spanish and its web page www.metode.cat, as well as the different social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Telegram). Furthermore, the magazine has opted for new initiatives, such as the publication of the yearbook in English Mètode Science Studies Journal or the publication of the book collection Monografies Mètode.
