Call for Papers in Historiography of Science

Transversal: International Journal for the Historiography of Science promotes scholarly research in the historiography of science and chronicles its history and criticism. Although historiography of science is a sub-discipline of History, we construe this subject broadly to include analysis of the historiography of science produced by history of science, philosophy of science and related disciplines. By focusing its analysis on the different historical, social and epistemological implications of science, historiography of science is a transversal knowledge with respect to the production of science, hence the name of this journal. In order to accomplish its purpose, Transversal: International Journal for the Historiography of Science discusses historical, theoretical, conceptual and methodological aspects of the different themes, works and authors present in this tradition, as well as the new approaches in the recent historiography of science.

Open topic articles may deal with a variety of themes in historiography of science as long as they are within the scope of the journal. All papers must be results of original research. Papers previously published are not eligible for submission, and will not be considered. 

Publication of the issues: June and December

Open topic articles, Dossiers and Book reviews are analyzed in a double-blinded system with two or more referees who decide whether the paper should be accepted or not, as well as suggest revisions.

There is no fee for article submission and review.
In addition to English articles, Transversal: International Journal for the Historiography of Science accepts articles in Portuguese, Spanish and French for evaluation, but after approval for publication the author should send the final version in English. If the author is not a native English speaker, the English version should be accompanied by a revision certificate provided by a translation service.

Submissions:
Submissions should be handed in at any time via the webpage of the Journal https://www.seer.ufmg.br/index.php/transversal so they can be considered for the next issues of Transversal: International Journal for the Historiography of Science. In the website one can also find thorough instructions for authors.
