CALL FOR WRITERS History of Scientific Thought

We are currently seeking qualified writers to contribute essays to a new, three-volume guide to topics in the history of science to be published by the Gale Group. The History of Scientific Thought (working title) is designed to help high-school and early college-age students develop an understanding of the history behind the concepts they study in their science classes. The selection of the work’s content has been overseen by a team of experts that includes Editor-in-Chief Lesley Cormack and a board of advisors representing a variety of academic specialties. Our advisors are: Brian Dolan; Andrew Ede; Paula Findlen; Robert A. Hatch; Jane Maienschein; Lewis Pyenson; Deborah Warner; Bill Bond; and Tami Caraballo.

The encyclopedia will contain approximately 120 signed entries, ranging in length from 4,500 to 8,000 words, with payment varying according to length. If you are interested in contributing to the project, please contact Tom and Sara Pendergast, the managing editors of the project, at [email protected].
