Scientific American's Board of Advisers is drawn from prestigious academic institutions and corporations from across the U.S. A Board of Advisers of this gravitas underlines Scientific American's commitment to accurately and accessibly report insights from scientists and key opinion leaders. The advisers give the editorial team feedback on story proposals and manuscripts; they act as a source of inspiration and a reality check to ensure Scientific American covers the best in science. The Board of Advisers was expanded in 2009.
