Serendipities is an international peer-reviewed online journal for sociology and history of the social sciences, established in 2014. Serendipities publishes three kinds of texts: Articles report research results, develop theoretical arguments, or – at best – offer a combination of both. An article has to be concerned with the sociology and history of the social sciences and should demonstrate how it adds to our understanding by relating to and positioning itself towards the relevant literature from this field. Book reviews are intended to present and assess new publications relevant to the field of the journal. (…) A third kind of text will be materials. These can either be archival materials, i.e., items from the past that are deemed valuable enough to be made visible to the scientific community, e.g. letters, unpublished manuscripts, administrative documents etc., together with short commentaries on the significance of the documents. Or, using some of the functionalities offered by digitalization, these materials can also be contemporary reconstructions of past situations (e.g., visualizations), data sets, or the like. http://serendipities.uni-graz.at/index.php/serendipities

Social Science History

Social Science History

Social Science History advances the study of the past, publishing peer-reviewed original articles that combine empirical research with theoretical work, undertake comparisons across time and distance, or contribute to the development of quantitative or qualitative methods of analysis. The interdisciplinary research community of social scientists — historians, sociologists, economists, political scientists, anthropologists, and geographers — that form the membership of the Social Science History Association and its research networks benefit from the high-quality articles provided by the journal. https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/social-science-history
