What We Publish

HOPOS research engages past philosophers of science on their own terms and in their own context. Among the core contributions of HOPOS are landmark analyses of logical empiricism, the new sciences of the early-modern period, relativity and quantum theory, philosophy of mathematics, Kantian and neo-Kantian philosophy of science, and early analytic philosophy. The journal HOPOS also provides a strong existing platform in the history of the social and life sciences, including economics, the life sciences, history, and psychology. The journal provides a synoptic view of the history of the philosophy of science, and does not restrict submissions to any specific time period, scientific enterprise, philosophical approach, or geographical location.

The HOPOS journal is index by EBSCOhost (Humanities SourceMasterFILE Complete, and TOC Premier), Clarivate Analytics (Emerging Sources Citation Index), the Norwegian Centre for Research Data (European Reference Index for the Humanities and Social Sciences) and Elsevier’s SCOPUS.
