... "Referring back to the approach of Kuhn (1962), the structure of scientific revolutions, could the history of ideas about innovation have developed differently, if back in 2003, in their published article, Leydesdorff and Etzkowitz (2003) had decided to add the development of a fourth helix to Triple Helix? Our answer is: yes, for sure." ...
... The Roman Empire has been known to use coal for household heating in Britannia (Dearne and Branigan, 1995). The dreaded Greek fire, an early incendiary weapon used by the Byzantine Empire, is believed to have been partly based on petroleum or naphtha (Partington and Hall, 1999). Speight (2007) covers the history of petroleum utilization and terminology in greater detail. ...

... Since Harry Oldenburg articulated the standards for scientific editing in the mid-seventeenth century through the journal Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, scientific periodicals have undergone impressive changes (Hall and Hall 1966;Fyfe McDougall-Waters and Moxham 2015). They went from a naive form, dubbed the Little Science, to one very different: crowded, complex, hard, stormy; the Big Science, which were christened so by Price (1986). ...
... 9 Schlick to Einstein, 10 June 1920, Vol. 10 Doc. 51 CPAE. 10 A translation is found in Hall and Hall [1962]. The date of this important manuscript is still a matter of dispute. ...
... He proposes the existence of a subtle entity in all material bodies and this entity is causally efficacious. The historians of sciences Marie Boas Hall and Rupert Hall argue that Newton believed that this entity is the cause of all the then known physical phenomena, except for gravity and he might even have thought of this entity as being more fundamental then gravity [7]. ...
... He published two books "Principia" in the year 1687 and "Optics" in 1704 instead of publishing again in the journals. Many people blame Oldenburg for the rivalry between Newton and Hooke, but evidences suggest that it is not true [8] ; Oldenburg perhaps tried to implement a gatekeeping mechanism for the scientific literature for which he had to pay the price of such dubious allegation. The Philosophical Transactions is still being published regularly and is the world's first and longest-running scientific journal. ...
... Дени написал Генри Олденбургу, секретарю Лондонского королевского общества, заявляя о своем приоритете первого переливания от животного к человеку, добавив, что «проект переливания больным крови здорового животного» была задуман 10 лет назад (1657 г.) на собрании «прославленного Общества Виртуозов». Олденбург возразил, что «англичане вполне могли бы быть первыми, если бы они не были столь деликатными в вопросах безопасности жизни человека» (Hall, Hall 1980). Согласно хронологии событий, Ричард Лоуэр выполнил первое переливание крови от животного животному (1665 г.), в то время как Жан Батист Дени осуществил первое переливание крови от животных человеку (1667 г.). ...
