Although OmniScience went out of active publication in 1993 for many years, much of the information contained in those older issues still has relevance and usefulness today. In anticipation of the revival of OmniScience, these back issues are now available here to help you judge whether you would like to subscribe to future issues. (The original files for Volume II Numbers 3 and 4 have not yet been located, so they are not available yet.) The Tables of Contents for these issues are shown on this page for your convenience.

All issues had sections on the current Omnis training class offerings and demonstration products. These are no longer valid, but class schedules and product listings can be found elsewhere on this site.
