Call for Submissions: Engineering Studies

The editorial staff of the journal Engineering Studies is seeking manuscripts on social and cultural aspects of engineers and engineering broadly defined. Our mission is:

• to advance critical analysis in historical, social, cultural, political, philosophical, rhetorical, and organizational studies of engineers and engineering;
• to help serve diverse communities of researchers interested in engineering studies;
• to link scholarly work in engineering studies with broader discussions and debates about engineering education, research, practice, policy, and representation.

The editors of Engineering Studies are interested in papers that consider the following questions:

• How does this paper enhance critical understanding of engineers or engineering?
• What are the relationships among the technical and nontechnical dimensions of engineering practices, and how do these relationships vary over time and space?

We invite works from humanists and social scientists studying the historical, political, philosophical, rhetorical, organizational, geographic, literary, or other dimensions of engineering. Practitioners in technical communication, technical work, engineering education, and policy studies are also invited to submit research which brings critical analysis to bear on the ideologies and assumptions underlying engineering’s culture and practice.

Engineering Studies publishes regular research articles, systematic literature reviews, reports, book reviews, and Critical Participation pieces. The latter should make an intervention in the engineering studies and/or engineering communities. Regular research articles will be double-blind reviewed and Critical Participation articles single-blind by expert referees under the guidance of an Associate Editor.
