Teen eager for science journal

I was only thirteen at the time, but I do remember reading about it [entomologist Jonathan Waage's 1979 paper on damselfly sex], probably  in Kijk, the  Dutch high school science and technology monthly that I used to devour the moment it landed in our mailbox.
Menno Schilthuizen, Nature's Nether Regions: What the Sex Lives of Bugs, Birds, and Beasts Tell Us Abut Evolution, Biodiversity, and Ourselves (New York: Penguin Books, 2015), p. 109

(Kijk is apparently still going strong. Google tells me it means "look" in Dutch.)
