About this series
Sociology of the Sciences Yearbook publishes collections of papers that focus on specific overarching topics. Each Yearbook offers an opportunity for the integration of different disciplinary strategies and their interrelated development. The term sociology in the title is, thus, meant broadly and includes historical and philosophical dimensions. The Yearbook seeks to go beyond unitary and monolithic schematisations of scientific knowledge, and it similarly considers the study of scientists inseparable from the study of developments in scientific knowledge and both as major parts of the general study of social change and development.
Topics covered in the series include:
· Democratization of Expertise (Vol. 24)
· The Sciences' Media Connection - Public Communication and its Repercussions (Vol. 28)
· The Local Configuration of New Research Fields - On Regional and National Diversity (Vol. 29)
