Indian Science News Association (ISNA) was established in
the year 1935 by eminent scientists Professor Meghnad Saha
and Acharya P.C. Ray, and was sustained by Professor S.K.
Mitra, Professor B.C. Guha, Professor D.S. Kothari,
Professor S.S. Bhatnagar, Professor P.C. Mahalanobish, Prof.
D.M. Bose and many other stalwarts. The main objective of
the Association is to promote and disseminate knowledge,
laying special stress on scientific studies in India and
abroad and to advocate the methodical application of science
to problems of national regeneration. The Association
provides a platform to the growing scientific knowledge
vis-ŕ-vis the culture of our country. The first President of
the Association was Acharya P.C. Ray and the founder
secretaries were Professor Meghnad Saha and Professor B.B.
Ray. The ‘Science and Culture’ is the mouth piece of the
organization. With the above objectives in view, the
Association has been publishing ‘SCIENCE AND CULTURE’
monthly, since 1935. Not only scientific articles on
nationally important events, conservation and developmental
aspects have been published in the journal.
During its long period of existence, the association
witnessed several financial crises as it is autonomous and
depends on grants and donations, both from government and
charitable organizations. However, the slump during 1992-95
was acute and affected the publication of the journal. It
was decided during that time to publish the journal
bimonthly and keep the continuity. Since then, by acquiring
some funds, an endowment has been created and the journal is
brought out on the interest proceeds of the fund. Recent
years have witnessed an increasing popularity of the
(truncated bimonthly) journal and there is a demand amongst
readers for monthly publication.
However, the funds position do not permit this. As more and
more well written and thought provoking articles are
arriving at our office for publication in the journal, it is
all the more tempting to revamp the journal and bring it
back to monthly publication.

Science to new heights of glory.
