Turkey censors evolution

It has been the biggest crisis in Turkish academia since last year's lifting of the headscarf ban in universities. Last week a portrait of Charles Darwin was taken off the cover of the March issue of the government-backed science magazine Bilim ve Teknik (Science and Technology) just before it went to press. TÜBTAK, Turkey's national science funding agency, which publishes the magazine, then sacked its editor, Çidem Atakuman. Scientists, assuming censorship, are justifiably outraged and protests are ongoing.
