Focus and Scope

The field-defining Journal of Scientonomy offers research that deepens our understanding of the process of scientific change. The underlying idea of the journal is that scientific change is a law-governed process and that it is best studied in a piecemeal theory-guided fashion.

The journal publishes works that attempt to accomplish the following:

  1. seek solutions to topical issues in theoretical scientonomy;
  2. apply the current accepted theory to historical cases of scientific change;
  3. engage in a philosophical analysis of the key concepts of scientonomy.

There is a considerable gap in the traditional Science Studies in general, since these days these studies are inherently anti-theoretical and openly reject the possibility of a general theory of science. In contrast, we believe that the process of scientific change obeys certain laws and should be studied scientifically as any other process in time.
