About Us

Formed by a small group of friends, professors and students, wantingwave.com is an online publication for scientific reporting that aims to present research in clear, concise English. Every week we comb through the latest science journals and read through the most interesting research taking place, and when we find something that we believe our readers would like to know about, we cover it here. We take accuracy and integrity extremely seriously, so with each story, we make sure to get the facts 100% correct before publishing (usually this involves many hours of research and editing). It’s our aim to be one of the web’s premier sources for science news, and we aim to get there by publishing the highest quality content possible.

As wantingwave.com is a non-profit endeavor, we do not plan on running advertisements on this website.
