Good peer reviews, good editorial staff, ability to present opposing or novel views -- AFTER the research has been checked.
Scientific American is the classic, Nature is good, Journal of the American Medical Society is top-notch (and VERY rough on the writers. VERY picky
standards. If it's in JAMA, you can rely on the data as a rule), Journal of Cell Biology, American Journal of Mathematics, Journal of Astrophysics
and Astronomy, Sky & Telescope.
...and so forth. There's a zillion of them. Basically, you'd find the magazines in the collections of the grad schools of major universities
around the world.
