The Magazine: Annals of Improbable Research

The magazine about research that makes people LAUGH, then THINK.

Real research, about anything and everything, from everywhere — research that’s maybe good or bad, important or trivial, valuable or worthless. Compiled for you, by the producers of the Ig Nobel Prizeceremony. Six (6) new Improbable issues every year!

It’s (pretty) easy to SUBSCRIBE or buy single issues!

  • PERPLEXED about how to subscribe? THIS may help.
  • How to BUY A GIFT (Currently you can do this with single issues. We hope to soon have the machinery in place for gift subscriptions, too).
  • The magazine is published in PDF form. (The last issue to be published in paper form was November/December 2015 (issue vol.21, no.6)
