Notes to answerer
Asker: Do you mean you would just put what you have written, here? It sounds a bit odd, perhaps, to translate it as 'Science and the Future'.


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Nikki Scott-Despaigne: Sciences et Avenir, in italics. It is a proper noun, the name of a magazine and should not be translated. Convention would dictate that you use italics where a foreign word is inserted in a text. Capital letters as in your original otherwise.
