Call for Proposals: Guest-Edited Special Issues, Endeavour

The Editors of Endeavour invite proposals by guest editors for thematic issues addressing any area of the history and philosophy of science. Endeavour especially welcomes visually rich publication by early career scholars, with an emphasis on global reach and cross-disciplinary perspectives. Thematic issues that relate to contemporary concerns in science and society or emerging scholarly trends are particularly welcome. Although any theme will be considered, suggested areas might include:

  • Environmental studies
  • Everyday practices in science
  • Gender, sexuality and science
  • Laboratory studies
  • Museum exhibits
  • Politics of disease
  • Science and politics
  • Science and religion
  • Science education
  • Science in global context

Proposals should be submitted in a Word document that includes the following information and submitted as an e-mail attachment sent to Don Opitz, Editor-in-Chief,

  • Name(s) and affiliation(s) of Guest Editor(s).
  • Theme / title of the thematic issue.
  • Brief 100–200 word abstract describing the theme.
  • Authors, affiliations, titles and abstracts of 4–6 papers (not including introduction) for inclusion in the issue. (Note: papers should be in the range of 10,000–15,000 words in length.)
  • Target submission date for full drafts of articles.

Proposals will be reviewed for alignment with the mission of the journal, coherence of theme and article subjects, and the articles’ readiness for submission. Up to two thematic issues may appear annually in the journal’s runs for 2020, 2021, and 2022.
