Historical Studies in the Natural Sciences welcomes submissions or original research articles, notable reviews, and special issues from influential and emerging scholars.


Historical Studies in the Natural Sciences (HSNS) is a peer-reviewed journal that reveals the diverse histories and practices of professional and vernacular knowledge as they have developed since the 18th century.

Published five times a year as an e-only journal, HSNS offers in-depth historical articles on a broad range of scientific and technical fields that span the globe in focus. HSNS is also a welcoming forum for papers that investigate the intersection of these histories with studies of gender, race, sexuality, the environment, and other topics.

Submitted articles are expected to be well-researched, thoughtfully argued pieces that reach beyond a descriptive narrative of a historical event or case study, and engage with the professional literature on the history of the natural sciences. Authors are asked to review HSNS author guidelines prior to submission.

Editorial inquiries should be directed to [email protected].
