Scope and policy
The aim of Scientiae Studiais to give visibility to academic production in the areas of philosophy and history of science without neglecting the contributions of related areas, such as the sociology of science and technology, the history of technical practices and the philosophy of technology. The journal’s orientation is strictly focused on philosophical and historical studies of science, understood broadly to include the exact, natural and human sciences, and the impact of the technological application of science on culture and on society. From the outset, Scientiae Studia has aimed to publish contributions that attempt to understand science as a reflection of culture and an expression of the current stage of the process of civilization, analyzing the internal aspects that mark the rationality and autonomy of science, while also attending to the social values that give sustenance to scientific and technological practices and that provide the context for posing questions about the ethical and social responsibility of scientists and technologists.
Furthermore, the journal is addressed to the Portuguese and Spanish speaking scientific and academic communities, aiming not only to share critical (historical, epistemological, ethical) studies about science and technology, but also to foster a greater linguistic and cultural integration among the Latin American countries.
It should be especially noted that the editorial policy of the journal reflects a thoroughly interdisciplinary outlook, since it is dedicated to studies that enter into contact with the frontiers of disciplines such as philosophy, history, sociology and anthropology.
The journal publishes academic articles, translations of historically valuable scientific documents (mainly scientific correspondence), critical analyses of current publications in the areas of interest, discussions of relevant aspects of science and technology policies, and critical reviews of classical and recent texts.Regarding peer review, an Editorial Board has been established, composed of scholars whose competence is recognized nationally and internationally in the areas of the journal’s specialization, and from the outset there has been a system of blind refereeing in place that involves two referees for each article, so as to ensure the quality of published articles, as well their fit with the journal’s orientation. Referees receive a set of instructions in order to ensure that the form of referees’ reports is more or less uniform.
