Len Fisher’s Journalism

I have been a regular columnist for BBC Focus Magazine in the UK, and have written many popular articles for national and international magazines and newspapers. I am happy to accept commissions for articles on such topics as:

What is the science behind … ?

How can we make science more accessible?

What does science have to say about the big questions?

How does a scientist see the little problems of everyday life?

Below is a selection of articles that I have written on these and other topics. The titles are my original titles, which were sometimes altered by sub-editors. You can view my articles by topic or in chronological order.
