UC PRESS HISTORY OF SCIENCE JOURNAL CHANGES TITLE AND MOVES FROM BIANNUAL TO QUARTERLY PUBLICATION SCHEDULE IN 2008
University of California Press Journals + Digital Publishing is pleased to announce that one of its most eminent journals, Historical Studies in the Physical and Biological Sciences
(HSPS), is undergoing a title change to better reflect the broad scope of scholarship contained within its pages. The first issue with the new title, Historical Studies in the Natural Sciences
, will be Volume 38 No. 1, scheduled to be released in February 2008. The journal will continue its legacy as the premier journal in the historiography of science with extensive coverage of all aspects of natural science history. HSNS will continue to be published by UC Press for the Office for History of Science and Technology, University of California, Berkeley.
Further demonstrating its commitment to serve the history of science community, the journal will also be moving to a quarterly publication schedule with volume 38. The new publication months for the journal will be February, May, August, and November.
UC Press will be formally launching HSNS at the History of Science Society Annual Meeting
, in Arlington VA. The Press will host a reception on Friday November 2, 7-8:30 (room location TBD) at the Marriott Crystal Gateway. The reception will also introduce the new editors of HSNS, chaired by Cathryn Carson. All attendees of the HSS annual meeting are invited to attend.
Subscribers to Volume 37 of HSNS will be receiving a special supplemental issue of the journal in September 2007. This issue will be printed and shipped to all subscribers at no cost to them. The issue will be made available free of charge on UC Press’ online hosting platform Caliber.
"We are delighted that the newly-evolved HSNS will more extensively cover the dynamic history of science field." says Rebecca Simon
, Director, University of California Press Journals + Digital Publishing. "The expansion to quarterly publication will allow scholars to get vital scholarship out to the science history community more quickly. UC Press is eager to help make that a reality and further enhance the distinguished legacy of the journal."
