About the journal

Centaurus. Journal of the European Society for the History of Science is an international English language journal and the official journal of the European Society for the History of Science. The journal was started in 1950 and has remained one of the major journals devoted to the study of the history of science.

Formerly published by Munksgaard, Blackwell and Wiley, the journal is now published by Brepols. Currently, Centaurus is co-owned by the ESHS and Brepols and is controlled by the scholarly community.1
