HoST (e-journal)

An International Journal
for the History of
Science and Technology


HoST is an on-line international journal devoted to the History of Science and Technology. It explores the cultural and social dimensions of science and technology in history across the world.

HoST is edited in Lisbon by a group of Portuguese historians of science and technology but it aims to publish contributions from scholars worldwide and reach an international audience. It only accepts papers in English as a strong commitment to cross-cultural dialogue.

HoST is peer-reviewed and it is published twice a year, in spring (May) and in fall (November). The spring issue is thematic. Each number typically includes four research papers, a section on work-in progress and six book reviews (with one essay review).

HoST hosts each year in the beginning of June an international workshop on a relevant subject both for the Portuguese and international communities of historians of science and technology. The workshop acts as the main supplier of the thematic spring issue.

HoST contents are totally accessible online. HoST joins Open Access journals' effort to enhance the global circulation of knowledge.

HoST has a pdf edited version which can be downloaded from the website. Thus, the readers who prefer it may produce their own paper support version of HoST.
