Since 1972, Science, Technology, & Human Values has provided a forum for cutting-edge research and debate in the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS). This is a collectively edited, peer-reviewed, transnational, interdisciplinary journal containing research, analyses and commentary on the development and dynamics of science and technology, with a focus on their relationship to politics, economy, society and culture.

ST&HV publishes and seeks to foster work that is politically and ethically engaged from scholars from across the social sciences and humanities. It is committed to publishing both field-defining and field-extending work, expanding the purview of the field into new areas, and intervening in a common set of conceptual and topical conversations. The journal publishes work that contributes to STS and makes a contribution with STS, emphasising that theory, method and practice unfold in situated assemblages.

To find out more about the journal, read it, or submit your research for consideration, please visit the publisher‘s website.
