Science, Technology, & Human Values

Science, Technology, & Human Values is the official journal of the Society for Social Studies of Science. It publishes work from a variety of disciplines on science and technology in social context. The journal began in 1972 as the “Newsletter of the Program on Public Conceptions of Science” at Harvard University, a program funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation and led by Gerald Holton. The first editor, William Blanpied, invited contributions from researchers in various disciplines who were concerned with the problem of public understanding of science. Holton and Blanpied located the newsletter in a contentious field of debate over the value-embeddednessand rationality of science. Early issues provided bibliographies of recent articles and lists of relevant journals, professional groups, and courses.
