Beginning in January 2009, Bulletin subscribers will receive the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists magazine in its new digital format only. To save on the steeply rising costs of paper and postage, the Bulletin will no longer produce a print edition of its magazine.
Through individual Bulletin accounts, subscribers will be able to book mark articles, set up news alerts, browse by subject and author, and more. Starting in 2009, subscribers will also have full, searchable access to the past 10 years of Bulletin articles and source documents.
Instructions will be sent to subscribers in December about setting up accounts. For additional information, please contact Barb Netter at email@example.com.

Initiatives designed to boost circulation of the magazine cost far more than they were generating in new print subscriptions.”
As of December 9, 2008, 53 years of Bulletin content is now available online for free at Google Books.
