Moreover, the website has increased its interactivity, thanks to the new section «Mètode’s Whys and Wherefores», visited by more than 2000 users interested in science. In this section, Mètode encourages its readership to make queries related to science in everyday life, giving them a chance to win a subscription to our journal for a year if their question is chosen. Besides, Mètode’s users have the possibility to access for free the vast archive of the journal through the portal, where readers can re-read published features, articles and interviews in older issues of Mètode.
