The Week Junior Science+Nature, the award-winning monthly magazine that brings science, technology, engineering and maths to life for 8–15 year olds, has released its first ABC figure, with an impressive average monthly circulation of 30,057. 

Each issue of the magazine is packed full of amazing facts, breathtaking images, activities and experiments. In April 2021, the editorial team launched a podcast, Mysteries of Science.

Anna Bassi, Editorial Director of The Week Junior said: “I’m delighted that The Week Junior continues to attract new readers whilst retaining long-term subscribers. The success of its sister title – Science+Nature – further demonstrates the excellence of our editorial.  We strive to provide children with magazines that they genuinely love to read, and seeing strong results like this shows that the hard work of our talented editorial team is paying off.”

MoneyWeek shows digital volume growth
MoneyWeek, the UK’s best-selling financial magazine, reported a combined total circulation of 54,878, a PoP increase of 61.4% and a YoY increase of 92.6%.

The Week
The Week, the weekly magazine that tells you all you need to know about everything that matters, reported an increase in its print circulation, taking it to 132,143, and a combined average weekly circulation of 160,986.

Every single title of our portfolio showed positive growth, and demonstrated the remarkable strength of their unique editorial appeals. It’s been a delight to see The Week Junior grow over the years.
