Published monthly, Asimov's Science Fiction was launched in 1978, during a period when the science fiction magazine market was doing fairly well. Although the use of Asimov's name (which he sanctioned) implies that the content would consist of the kind of "hard SF" with which Asimov made his name, the stories actually tend more towards Twilight Zone-type urban fantasies. Stories published in Asimov's frequently dominate the ballots for the Hugo Awards, in part because it is one of the best-paying markets for short SF, and can thus attract the best authors.
Though it has glossy covers, the pages are printed on newsprint. There are some ads, but much fewer than is the case with most magazines. The size is equivalent to a thin trade paperback (5" x 8".) You can subscribe through Amazon.com if you have a mailing address in the U.S.
