New Scientist article New Science, the leading scientific journal of the 21st century, has decided to end its membership in the Royal Society, according to the journal’s editors.
The decision, announced this week, comes amid the publication of a scathing report by the charity’s Ethics Committee.
The report, published in December, said that New Scientist was using its influence to influence decisions that would harm the planet.
“This is a deeply disappointing and unacceptable decision by the Royal Statistical Society,” said Philip D. Watson, the journal co-founder and a former director of the Royal Scientific and Technical Society.
“I will be seeking to amend the organisation’s charter to make clear that membership of the RSP cannot be used to influence its policies.”
The RSP has said that it will review its membership policies in light of the report and is committed to fostering a more environmentally friendly society.
“New Scientist has long been an advocate for ethical journalism, and its membership remains an important source of expertise on a range of important issues, including climate change,” said Watson.
The report said that in 2014 the RSC’s board of governors, which represents the organisation, “failed to properly consider the impact of the use of its membership resources on its work”. “
It is my hope that this report, and other similar issues raised in it, will help to strengthen our ability to provide informed opinions to the public and to make informed decisions on important issues.”
The report said that in 2014 the RSC’s board of governors, which represents the organisation, “failed to properly consider the impact of the use of its membership resources on its work”.
“We are concerned about New Scientist’s use of public funds to promote climate change, particularly in the face of evidence suggesting that climate change is a major threat to human civilisation,” said the report, which was published in March by the London-based organisation.
The RSC also said it would take action to “rethink” its policy of not accepting new research from scientists who “are engaged in research that conflicts with the view of the majority of scientists in the scientific community”.
The report was led by Richard Dawkins, a leading advocate of evolutionary biology, who said it was “an abuse of the public trust”.
He said that the RSS was “a powerful organisation” and said it “has long been a champion of ethical journalism”.
“The RSP is a public institution that must be seen as an institution that supports good science, not one that seeks to shape its own policy,” he said.
The Royal Statistical Association said that Watson’s organisation, which has been running for more than 40 years, was “one of the most important institutions of our time”.
“In our view, the RSM is not fit for purpose in its current context,” it said in a statement.
“The board is not well-placed to judge whether New Scientist is ethical in its present context and it is therefore the board’s duty to examine the situation.”
