Lateral Magazine is an online publication that explores the intersections of science and society. Published monthly by the Young Australian Skeptics, Lateral Magazine is edited by a team of scientists and journalists and highlights work by emerging science writers. Each month, the magazine publishes feature articles on a shared monthly theme along with additional articles, editorials, and regular columns. In the December 2016 issue, Heart, readers will find an investigation about the history and future of heart transplants, a consideration of the possibility of artificial hearts, and an analysis of how the heart came to symbolize love and emotion. Regular columns in Lateral Magazine include Ethograms, an exploration of animal behavior; Field Studies, an investigation of current scientific research projects around the world; and Gene Dosage, which seeks to explain "what genome science is uncovering about each individual's unique response to drugs and pharmaceuticals." Visitors can explore past articles by Issue, or by Section, which categorizes articles by subjects including Life Science, Physical Science, and Philosophy and History.
