Aims & Scope

A proud tradition
Endeavour publishes brief articles that review the history and philosophy of science. Originally established in 1942 as a forum for reviewing the latest developments in science, its long and proud history has seen Endeavour develop into one of the leading journals in the history of science field. Unlimited in its coverage, but with extensive material focusing on the life sciences, technology and medicine, Endeavour provides a critical forum for the inter-disciplinary exploration and evaluation of specific subjects or people that have affected the development of the scientific discipline throughout history.

Multi-faceted history
Endeavour presents the history of science in a clear and accessible manner, ensuring the journal is a valuable tool for historians, practicing scientists and general readers. To enable it to have the broadest coverage possible, Endeavour features three types of articles:

Reviews are concise, fully referenced and beautifully illustrated with high quality reproductions of the most important source material.

Opinions are critical commentaries on the most pertinent issues in the history of science that discuss how heritage would be best preserved, reappraise the historiography of a variety of topic areas and suggest new perspectives with which we can consider established concepts in the field.

Book Reviews provide a picture of the rapidly growing history of science discipline. Written by a collection of scholars, ranging from established specialists to the hottest new scholars in the field, our reviews provide a vibrant overview of the latest publications in the history of science market.


Historians of science, scientists and the interested general reader.
