Studium (journal)

Studium presents scholarly articles and book reviews devoted to the history of science, scholarship and academic culture – in its broadest sense. Even though there is no limitation to any specific period or topic, the journal is especially (although not exclusively) interested in the Low Countries and their former colonies.

Contributions should be original, based upon original research, and written in either English, French, or Dutch. The editorial board applies a double blind peer review procedure in assessing contributions. See information for authors.

In addition to regular articles, Studium contains a number of sections. Archival and object discoveries are the subject of ‘Pandora’s Box’; new publications in the area of the history of sciences are discussed in the reviews section.
