Astonishing Science. Spectacular museum.
The Science Museum Group is producing a new open access e-journal
The Science Museum is a catalyst for generating new knowledge, whether in understanding the relationships between science and society now and in the past, developing skills in conserving scientific objects, or researching new ways to display and communicate science. We feel this knowledge forms an essential part of the wider scholarly world. So, for the first time, research relevant to the activity and interests of the Science Museum Group is receiving its own outlet: an online, peer-reviewed journal, free and accessible to all.
The Journal launches on 25 March 2014. It will be published twice yearly, with scholarly articles by both internal and external authors whose work touches on the collections, practice and concerns of the Science Museum Group (including the Science Museum in London, Museum of Science & Industry in Manchester, National Railway Museum in York and Shildon, and National Media Museum in Bradford) and the wider international science museum community.
The Science Museum Group Journal will be a new voice in discussions worldwide about science, its history, material culture, communication and presentation in museums. We invite you to join the conversation.
We are currently inviting authors to submit articles for consideration. If you would like to contribute to the Journal please contact the Editor by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
