Science Resource: The Johns Hopkins University Press will be the distributor for a richly illustrated paperback volume, accompanied by a free classroom guide, on the biomedical revolution. Produced by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and scheduled to be published June 1, Exploring the Biomedical Revolution is a 432-page look at the work of frontline scientists written by leading science writers. It will sell for $19.95.

Covering topics that range from genetic coding and microbes to magnetic- resonance scanning and Lyme disease, the book is written for a general audience as part of the medical institute’s public education mission. One of its features is a stereoscopic viewer that allows readers to view the book’s three-dimensional illustrations.

Judy Brown, a science education consultant, wrote the classroom guide for the book. More information is available from the Johns Hopkins University Press at (800) 537-5487, or on its Web site: .edu/press/books/titles/s00/s00hhex.htm.

New Teachers: The publishing giant Scholastic Inc. has launched a new magazine this spring that will be distributed free twice a year to new teachers.

Instructor New Teacher Magazine will be a sister publication to the company’s other teacher magazine, Instructor. Editorial content for the new venture has been developed using research compiled from surveys of new teachers, according to company officials. They say the research revealed that “new teachers believed their training did not go far enough, they felt alone, with few mentors, and they were overwhelmed by parent and classroom management.”

Free distribution of the magazine has been made possible by heavy advertising support, which Scholastic touts in a news release announcing the venture. More than 30 leading advertisers, from Microsoft to the Discovery Channel, signed on for the Spring 2001 issue.

Further information is available by calling (800) SCHOLASTIC, or online at
