About FYI

Published by AIP since 1989, FYI is an authoritative source for science policy news and analysis trusted by policymakers and scientists nationwide.

We focus on the intersection of policy and the physical sciences, offering in-depth reporting on topics such as innovation and competitiveness, research security, STEM education and workforce development, equity and inclusion, climate change, and emerging technologies. We provide systematic coverage of key federal science agencies such as the Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation, and NASA.

In addition to full-length articles, we publish a weekly newsletter that keeps readers up to date on key developments in science policy. This newsletter also rounds up reporting from around the web, highlights new job opportunities, and previews policy events in Washington, D.C., and beyond.

Our policy tracking tools offer extensive information on science agency budgets, science leaders across the federal government, and the most important science bills in Congress. Our goal is to help newcomers and experts alike deepen their understanding of the people and processes that drive the U.S. research enterprise.
