The recently republished online science magazine EurekaMag.com traditionally provided comprehensive definitions and scientific information in the basic and applied life, earth and health sciences. It now includes a new category to provide shorter, one-page reviews of scientific terms.

While the Life-and-Earth-Sciences Magazine was earlier divided into four major categories, i.e., Science Research, Science Websites, Science Keywords and Keyphrases, and Science Subjects, it just published another section termed Life-and-Earth-Sciences Reviews.

The Life-and-Earth-Sciences Reviews category provides more compact information, insights and definitions about specific scientific topics. While articles in its Life-and-Earth-Sciences Keyword and Life-and-Earth-Sciences Keyphrase categories are comprehensive and up to several pages in length, articles in the new Reviews category are only one page long and, consequently, more suitable to get a quick overview of the scientific topic researched. Users are advised to consult the Life-and-Earth-Sciences Reviews category to quickly get familiar with the subject and subsequently refer to the Science Keywords and Keyphrases categories for a more comprehensive review of the scientific subject. This new category contains nearly 1.1m compact articles which act as abstracts of the comprehensive reviews in the Keyword and Keyphrase categories of the Science Magazine.

Among the scientific subjects covered in both categories is one insight into "Alveofact". Alveofact is a commercial drug containing the active ingredient Bovactant which is an extract of bovine lung commonly used as an artificial surfactant. While the comprehensive review in the Life-and-Earth-Sciences Keyword category contains two webpages and 1,602 words, the shorter Alveofact Life-and-Earth-Sciences Review in the new category extends to only one webpage with 931 words.

EurekaMag.com was launched in November 1998 and has emerged as a comprehensive aggregator of content in biology, in the applied life sciences agriculture, horticulture and forestry, in the earth sciences, in the environmental sciences, and in the health sciences. During the end of 2010 it received ca. 40,000 page impressions per day but was republished after a change of ownership in early 2011.

Users who wish to submit their own or their company's content for inclusion in EurekaMag.com are welcome to submit their listing to one or more of the 13,705 categories. The site maintains a number of RSS feeds including one "Most Shared" feed which enables users to subscribe to news in their most favorite science topics within the site. For better public exposure the site also maintains and constantly updates accounts at Twitter ("@EurekaMag"), MySpace, Facebook and FeedBurner.
