There’s an entirely new website for the Skeptical Inquirer and Committee for Skeptical Inquiry, with a new address, a total redesign, and an attractive and user-friendly format. It went live in April 2019. The new address, skepticalinquirer.org, replaces csicop.org as the Skeptical Inquirer website and becomes the official internet home for the magazine and the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry. (And besides, the organization hasn’t been called “CSICOP” since 2006.) New magazine articles and blog posts live alongside the easily accessible archive of Skeptical Inquirer magazine issues.
At the new mobile-friendly website, you’ll also find articles organized by original issue publication, easy search functionality, an online store with cool skeptic swag, and the @SkeptInquirer Twitter feed, all within a design that matches that of the rest of the Center for Inquiry family of websites: the CFI, Free Inquiry/Council for Secular Humanism, and Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason & Science sites.
Once you go to skepticalinquirer.org, the menu in the upper right corner is your guide.

“I am so pleased with the new look of the Skeptical Inquirer website,” says CSI Executive Director Barry Karr. “It is so crisp and clean and so much easier to navigate. This is the first major redesign of the Skeptical Inquirer site since 2009, and the old site was starting to show its age. We hope that with the easily accessible and convenient digital subscription included our readers will now be able to take the Skeptical Inquirer with them wherever they go.”
“This has been a year-long continuing project of our great web people under the encouragement and support of top management and the CFI Board,” said Skeptical Inquirer Editor Kendrick Frazier. “I think it is a wonderful improvement. Hope you do as well.”
