For more than forty years Science, Technology, & Human Values has provided the forum for cutting-edge research and debate in the field of science and technology studies.

Fresh Perspecives

As scientific advances improve our lives, they also complicate how we live and react to the new technologies. More and more, human values come into conflict with scientific advancement as we deal with important issues such as nuclear power, environmental degradation and information technology. To fully cover the field and the vital issues that arise on an almost daily basis, the journal presents you with a variety of features including:

  • Articles...that report original empirical research or philosophical analyses that advance thinking in the field and provide you with provocative new insights and ideas.
  • Commentaries...that present you with fresh perspectives on major public issues involving science and technology, or respond to articles that have appeared in Science, Technology, & Human Values and are usually followed by a reply from the author.
  • Book Reviews...that summarize, analyze and provide context for new publications on science, technology and their relations with society and culture, keeping you current on important literature in the field.

  • ST&HV is committed to science and technology studies scholarship of every sort: conceptual and empirical, analytic and normative, qualitative and quantitative, fundamental and use-driven, provided that it is original, rigorous, logical, and lucid. We welcome work that couples analysis with ideas for action, that promotes dialogue and synthesis among diverse specialties and sectors, and that extends the purview of STS into new areas. ST&HV welcomes scholarship that crosses cultural borders, addresses global challenges, or explores emerging fields of science or technology. The scholarship in our field has attracted broad interdisciplinary interest, and in response ST&HV is committed to remaining an accessible, ecumenical, and readable journal. The motivation and implications of a paper must be clear, its conceptual language must use terms that are widely understood or clearly defined, and its empirical material and methods must be sound and described in sufficient detail.

    Manuscript Preparation Guideline

    Authors are invited to submit manuscripts of no more than 8,000 words, including endnotes and references. Please submit manuscripts electronically at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/sthv as an MS Word file. ST&HV uses the Chicago style for referencing, and we prefer in-text referencing (the author-date approach) and endnotes for extended elaborations/qualifications etc. to the main text. Please be prepared to provide an Abstract as well as five keywords with your manuscript. Author names and addresses should only appear on a removable cover page to facilitate double-blind review. If the manuscript includes complex figures or tables, please be prepared to send an additional print copy. Send all other correspondence to sthv no space journal no space at gmail

    1.1. Title, Keywords and Abstracts: Please include an abstract of no more than 200 words. Endnotes and references should follow the text, with tables and figures following on separate pages. To facilitate anonymous review, the name, affiliation, mailing address, phone and fax numbers, and e-mail address of each author should appear in a separate title page that is not included in the main document of a submitted paper. Please also list four to six keywords and any acknowledgments on the title page

    1.2. Maximizing online discoverability: The title, keywords and abstract are key to ensuring readers find your article online through online search engines such as Google. Please refer to the information and guidance on how best to title your article, write your abstract and select your keywords by visiting SAGE’s Journal Author Gateway Guidelines on how to Help Readers Find Your Article online.

    1.3. Author names, affiliations and corresponding author: Where the family name or surname may be ambiguous (e.g., a multiword name), please indicate this clearly. Author affiliations should only reflect the institution(s) where the research was done and will not be changed post publication. Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages, and the corresponding author should list a permanent email address (which is not related to his/her institution) so that readers can reach the corresponding author after any future job/institution shifts.

    1.4. Prepare manuscripts according to the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th Ed. Double-space all material, including the abstract, endnotes, references, quotations, appendixes, and tables. Each table and figure should appear at the end of the document file.

    Please make sure to take care of the following areas while preparing the content:

    · Page numbers should be mentioned for quoted material in the text.
    · Abbreviations must be spelled out in first occurrence per CMS style
    · References should be complete—volume, issue, page numbers (for journal-type references) and publisher name and location (Book-type references)· Accessed dates should be provided for online references

    When formatting text and references, please ensure you check the Chicago style (16th ed) for ST&HV. Here is the quick link to the Chicago style:

    SAGE Language Services: Leave the editing to the experts
    SAGE Language Services can help authors with editing, translation, and formatting of the manuscript prior to journal submission. An author's use of these services in no way guarantees that his or her submission will ultimately be accepted, and any costs incurred are the sole responsibility of the author. For further information, we encourage the authors to visit the SAGE Languageservices link.

    Manuscript Review Process: Upon receiving a new submission the Editors read papers carefully to determine their appropriateness for the journal – a process that takes about one month. Those submissions deemed appropriate are moved into a double-blind review process – a process that may take up to 6 months. Accepted papers are published ahead of print in OnLine First, and slated for print publication as soon as possible thereafter.

    Book Review Essays: Instead of “Book Reviews” ST&HV now publishes “Review Essays” that cover emerging themes within STS as catalyzed by recently published books in the field. Unlike traditional book reviews, these lengthier essays lend perspective by setting the books’ themes in the wider context of intellectual and methodological achievements, position those books within current debates and research trajectories, and indicate what conceptual and empirical work remains to be done. Review essays will be peer reviewed (under the editorship of David Ribes), and otherwise treated as regular article publications, rather than as book reviews. Please let us know if you are interested in undertaking a review for ST&HV. Queries should be sent to:

    Special Issues: We are delighted to publish strong special issues that make a clear contribution to STS scholarship. If you wish to propose a special issue project to ST&HV, here are some steps to take and some considerations to bear in mind:

    - Please start by preparing a brief summary of the special issue project, including the authors and the titles of the papers they will submit. Email this proposal to sthv no space journal no space at gmail. We will then let you know if your proposal is appropriate for ST&HV and explain how to submit full papers for consideration.

    - People submitting special issue proposals often want to know when their special issue will be published in print. Unfortunately, until we have received all complete manuscripts, there are too many unknowns for us to give a meaningful estimate of when your special will be published in print. We currently publish two special issues per year, and so any given special issue will be scheduled with respect to the set of other special issues that we have in our pipeline. In our experience papers within special issues and sometimes the entire issue will be delayed for one reason or another, and so it would be unwise for us to make firm publishing commitments until we have seen a full set of papers that are nearly ready to publish. Our best advice is to submit your special issue papers as soon as possible and in the best possible shape (which means conducting some internal review before sending it to ST&HV for external review). At that time, we will be able to give you a rough estimate of when it would be published, assuming the papers do well in the review process.

    - Whatever delays we may face in getting papers in to print, we are committed to publishing all papers in OnLine First within 1-2 months of their acceptance.

    - We encourage special issue editors to do thorough internal review of manuscripts before they are submitted, to ensure that the papers are of good quality. However, once the papers are submitted to ST&HV, our editors will manage double-blind peer review of all manuscripts, and each paper will be assessed both on its own merits and in terms of its role in the special issue. We will ask special issue editors to suggest names of potential reviewers, who should have no prior knowledge of the manuscripts.

    - Special issue editors sometimes ask if it is possible to publish commentaries along with the articles. We discourage this because ST&HV receives a high volume of manuscripts, and our priority is to use limited journal space to publish articles that present primary research and analysis. We strongly encourage special issue editors to consider publishing commentaries, and/or other such supplementary material to their special issue articles, in the Backchannels Blog [http://www.4sonline.org/blog] offered by the Society for Social Studies of Science.
