Call for submissions: International Science Review 38.2 (June 2013)

Interdisciplinary Science Reviews

Submissions are welcome to an open issue of ISR to be published in June 2013. Articles can address any topic as long as it fits within the broad mandate of the journal.

ISR aims to set contemporary and historical developments in the sciences and technology into their wider social and cultural context and to illuminate their interrelations with the humanities and arts. ISR seeks out contributions that measure up to the highest excellence in scholarship but that also speak to an audience of intelligent non-specialists. It actively explores the differing trajectories of the disciplines and practices in its purview, to clarify what each is attempting to do in its own terms, so that constructive dialogue across them is strengthened. It focuses whenever possible on conceptual bridge-building and collaborative research that nevertheless respect disciplinary variation.

Articles are normally about 6,000 words in length but should be no longer than 8,000 words. Illustrations are published in grey-scale only; their size figures into the word-length on the basis of ca 550 words/page.

Potential contributors should send a title and abstract for consideration to the Editor, as below, keeping the following deadlines
