Studies in History and Philosophy of Physics and other Sciences


This special issue devoted to the integrated study of history and philosophy of physics (from earliest times to the present day) will be published to give physics researchers appreciation of where the discipline has come from, and of the philosophical principles underpinning it. We aim to provide an advanced forum for studies related to the history and philosophy of physics including astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology, biology, chemistry and mathematics. Furthermore, the special issue is devoted to all aspects of the history and philosophy of modern physics broadly understood, including physical aspects of astronomy, chemistry and other non-biological sciences, and will provide the opportunity to bring together scientists with interests overlapping with those areas mentioned below in the subject areas. The editors also would like to encourage studies that outline the general development of the main branches of physics as we know them today and even to discuss principal figures in each area. Articles discussing methodology, and reviews of the current state of knowledge and possibilities for future research, are especially welcome.

Moreover, this issue will publish reviews and research articles. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. Full experimental and methodological details, as applicable, must be provided, and the special issue will be supported by Physics International. Physics International is a peer reviewed international scientific journal launched to cover current research in Physics. This journal is an open access and devoted to the publication of research / review articles concerned with the description, solution, and applications of physics. Physics International journal is internationally oriented with contributions from a wide range of perspectives. Contributions will be from a wide range of countries and cultural traditions.

Manuscripts regarding original research proposals and research ideas highly appreciated. Manuscripts containing summaries and surveys on research cooperation and actual and future projects (as those founded by national governments or others) are likewise appreciated, as they provide interesting information for a broad field of users.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  1. Earliest Beginnings, and the Greeks
  2. Atomism and corpuscularianism ? from the ancient philosophy to the modern chemistry and physics.
  3. The Dark Ages, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance
  4. Development of the Scientific Method
  5. Development of Classical Physics: Mechanics, Heat, Optics, Electromagnetism, Atoms
  6. Modern Physics: Relativity and Quantum Physics
  7. The Unification of Physical Phenomena
  8. Dissemination of the Results of Scientific Research
  9. Astronomy, Astrophysics and Gravitation
  10. Mathematical Physics / Physical Chemistry
  11. Philosophical issues in Cosmology
