The British Journal for the History of Science (BJHS) is celebrating 50 volumes just as the BSHS celebrates its 70th anniversary. In celebration of this great achievement, Editor Dr. Charlotte Sleigh has commissioned a virtual special issue for which each surviving former editor nominated one favourite paper from their period of tenure. As you can imagine, this takes us way back within the history–and historiography–of our field.

Cambridge University Press has graciously made this virtual special issue open access for as long as they maintain the page, so please take the time to go engage with these fantastic articles and read the editors’ recollections and reasons for their choices.

You can access the special issue here: https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/british-journal-for-the-history-of-science/celebrating-50-volumes
