Call for Papers - Historiography of Science and History of Science [The December 2020 Edition]

The upcoming December 2020 edition of Transversal: International Journal for the Historiography of Science will not feature a special issue (dossier) on a specific point of the historiography of science, as usual. Due to the large number of regular articles on open and broad themes in history and the historiography of science constantly being received and which do not fit in special issues – but are particularly important to the field –, this next edition of Transversal aims at bringing together different viewpoints on the writing of the historiography of science and additionally, the history of science, philosophy of science, and science education. The aim is to display, in an open and broad sense, the different possibilities and approaches to this field of study.


We hope to receive articles that discuss the history and historiography of distinctive disciplines (physics, mathematics, biology, geography, sociology, etc.) as well as different subjects and approaches of history and philosophy of science  (the foundation of science, scientific methodology, social and scientific relationships, etc.).
