Issuu is a 'magazine-like' digital reading service. We use it on selected pages to allow you to read Research Horizons magazine on-screen and you can identify it by the small thumbnail of the magazine's cover. When you open a page containing the embedded Issuu reader, Issuu sets two initial cookies ('_qca' and 'iutk'). When you click or tap the embedded reader, an additional cookie ('mc') is set. The purpose of '_qca' and 'mc' is to enable web publishers and advertisers to select audiences that are appropriate for their products or services. The purpose of 'iutk' is to help Issuu improve the services it provides to its users. Issuu’s privacy policy
