Call for submissions
Interdisciplinary Science Reviews
ISR is a quarterly journal that aims to set contemporary and historical
developments in the sciences and technology into their wider social and
cultural context and to illuminate their interrelations with the
humanities and arts. ISR seeks out contributions that measure up to the
highest excellence in scholarship but that also speak to an audience of
intelligent non-specialists. It actively explores the differing
trajectories of the disciplines and practices in its purview, to clarify
what each is attempting to do in its own terms, so that constructive
dialogue across them is strengthened. It focuses whenever possible on
conceptual bridge-building and collaborative research that nevertheless
respect disciplinary variation.
Most issues of ISR are thematic and commissioned in advance. Proposals
for issues, which usually contain 6-8 articles of ca 6,000 words each,
are welcome and should be sent to the Editor. Often a collection of
worthy papers arises from a conference, colloquium or the like.
Currently issues for 2015-16 are being planned. In addition ISR usually
has one open issue per year for which individual submissions on any
topic within the scope of the journal are welcome. This certainly
includes articles on research in digital humanities.
ISR 39.2 (June 2014) is the next open issue, for which submissions would
be most welcome. Final material for this issue is due to the publisher
in March 2014, so first drafts need to be ready for peer-reviewing by
mid to late Autumn 2013. Enquiries are welcome.
ISR dedicates space in each issue for book reviews. Please send any
enquiries about book reviewing to ISR's Book Reviews Editor, Dr Paul
Bohan Broderick <paul.bohanbroderick at gmail.com>.
