Journal : HOPOS: The Journal of the International Society for the History of Philosophy of Science

Another new journal that may be of interest to readers of this blog:

At long last HOPOS has its own journal. Published by the University of Chicago Press, the first issue is scheduled to appear Spring 2011 in both print and electronic formats.

The editors invite submission of article-length manuscripts to be published in HOPOS: The Journal of the International Society for the History of Philosophy of Science.

We seek to publish highest-quality scholarship concerning the history of philosophical discussions about science. The history of philosophy of science is broadly construed to include topics in the history of related disciplines, in all time periods and all geographical areas, using diverse
methodologies. The journal aims to:

  • provide an outlet for interdisciplinary work
  • increase the already unusually high level of participation of international scholars in the history of the philosophy of science,
  • raise the level of work in the history of philosophy of science by publishing scholarship that helps to explain the links among philosophy, science, and mathematics, along with the social, economic, and political context, which is indispensable for a genuine understanding of the history of philosophy.
HOPOS scholarship is firmly concerned with situating philosophical understandings of science within the broader historical and philosophical settings in which they were developed, and against the backdrop of mainstream issues in philosophical thought, covering epistemological,
methodological, metaphysical, and moral issues relevant to the growth of our knowledge of the world and human nature.

The journal does not limit submissions to HOPOS members. Scholars from all related disciplines are encouraged to submit to the journal. The length of articles is flexible, and all articles published in HOPOS are peer reviewed.

Please see the HOPOS journal home page at for further informationand for author instructions.

HOPOS does not consider unsolicited book reviews, but if you would like to be considered for a future review, please contact Warren Schmaus, Book Review Editor, at All other editorial correspondence should be sent to Rose-Mary Sargent, Editor, at
