Berkeley, California - August 2, 2007, University of California Press
Journals + Digital Publishing is pleased to announce that one of its
most eminent journals, Historical Studies in the Physical and
Biological Sciences (HSPS), is undergoing a title change to better
reflect the broad scope of scholarship contained within its pages.
The first issue with the new title, Historical Studies in the Natural
Sciences, will be Volume 38 No. 1, scheduled to be released in
February 2008. The journal will continue its legacy as the premier
journal in the historiography of science with extensive coverage of
all aspects of natural science history. HSNS will continue to be
published by UC Press for the Office for History of Science and
Technology,University of California, Berkeley. Further demonstrating
its commitment to serve the history of science community, the journal
will also be moving to a quarterly publication schedule with volume
38. The new publication months for the journal will be February, May,
August, and November.

UC Press will be formally launching HSNS at the History of Science
Society Annual Meeting, in Arlington VA. The Press will host a
reception on Friday November 2, 7-8:30 (room location TBD) at the
Marriott Crystal Gateway. The reception will also introduce the new
editors of HSNS, chaired by Cathryn Carson. All attendees of the HSS
annual meeting are invited to attend.

Subscribers to Volume 37 of HSNS will be receiving a special
supplemental issue of the journal in September 2007. This issue will
be printed and shipped to all subscribers at no cost to them. The
issue will be made available free of charge on UC Press' online
hosting platform Caliber.

"We are delighted that the newly-evolved HSNS will more extensively
cover the dynamic history of science field." says Rebecca Simon,
Director, University of California Press Journals + Digital
Publishing. "The expansion to quarterly publication will allow
scholars to get vital scholarship out to the science history
community more quickly. UC Press is eager to help make that a reality
and further enhance the distinguished legacy of the journal."
