Publisher: Elsevier


In recent years Studies in History and Philosophy of Science has seen a remarkable increase in submissions of high calibre articles in the fields of the history, sociology, and philosophy of biological and biomedical sciences. Elsevier Science Ltd and the Editors are delighted to present a new journal in an exciting and rapidly expanding area of science studies.Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Sciences is devoted to historical, sociological, philosophical and ethical aspects of the life and environmental sciences, of the sciences of mind and behaviour, and of the medical and biomedical sciences and technologies. The period covered is from the middle of the nineteenth century (the time of the so-called "laboratory revolution" in medicine and the life sciences) to the present.Our editorial policy follows that of the parent journal, Studies in History and Philosophy of Science: contributions are from a wide range of countries and cultural traditions; we encourage both specialist articles, and articles combining historical, philosophical, and sociological approaches; and we favour works of interest to scientists and medics as well as to specialists in the history, philosophy and sociology of the sciences.The Editors invite original contributions in the field of the new journal. All articles and volunteered essay-reviews will be blind refereed. Contributions and proposals should be sent to Dr Marina Frasca-Spada, Associate Editor, Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, Department of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Cambridge, Free School Lane, Cambridge CB2 3RH, UK, E-mail:
