We are delighted to announce our call for papers for publication of a special issue of Nuncius, Journal of the material and visual history of science. Vittoria Feola is the volume editor. Given the multidisciplinary nature of Scientiae, submission of abstracts are encouraged about the history of early modern medicine as well as about any other history of science-related topics. Nuncius is strong in the material and visual culture of science. Articles may contain pictures. A total of 7 abstracts will be selected and, subject to the editor’s judgement in accordance with blind peer-reviewing, will be published.
The work schedule is as follows:
Deadline for abstract selection: 15 July 2014
Articles due: 15 March 2015
By September 2015 blind referees’ reports will be circulated.
By 5 November 2015 final submissions will be due.
Early 2016, publication.
Non-native English speaking authors must have their abstracts and articles professionally proofread prior to their submission to Vittoria Feola. In other words, Vittoria Feola will not check the English of abstracts and articles, because she, as volume editor, is only responsible for the scientific content of the volume.
Abstracts for selection must be max 400 words.
Articles must be max 10,000 words including footnotes and may not exceed a total of 24 pages including pictures. One page is made up of 420 words footnotes included. One picture counts as one page. Authors must pay for copyright and reproduction rights where applicable. Please note the Brill submission guidelines.
Please email abstracts no later than 15 July 2014 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
