Upbeat, colorful magazine for 9-14 year olds that apeals to almost everyone.
Articles written by scientists and kids about anything "old", mostly
(including dinosaurs) and archaeology.
Plenty of hands-on activities makes it a valuable teachers' aid.
Notes: I'm trying to have a standardized format, but not fixated on it.
+No effort is made to separate "magazines" and "professional journals"
into separate lists; the differences between them are obvious to all.
+I don't plan on listing every single mag that ever had a dino article
but will concentrate on "major journals" with "frequent" dino material.
I'll be guided by those on this list and what the Email me to add to it.
(Don't post your input to the list; I might not be keeping up that week.)
Please don't go dig up every obscure journal you can think of
but please DO let me know of any journals that YOU consider a primary
source of new and useful information on dinosaurs and archosaurs.
I need complete data (what you see above). Telling me that I really need
to list this or that magazine without telling me its address, subscription
price, and other information isn't really much help. If I knew all of that
the magazine or journal would already be on the list.
+While it's a tough call, I do not plan to list publications which are not
available in English. If someone else wants to do that list, go ahead.
+Remember that this list is primarily of interest to
Dino-fans and amateurs; you PhDs and grad students in Paleontology
already have all of these journals and don't need the list.
+The plan is to accept your input and send a revised copy of this file
to the Dinosaur list about the first day of each month.
