To celebrate its tenth anniversary, Pulse: the Journal of Science and Culture invites submissions for an open-themed volume on science and culture understood in a broad, interdisciplinary manner. We welcome perspectives ranging from cultural studies, history, sociology and philosophy of science, medical and digital humanities, to animal and environmental studies, climatology, neuroscience, cognitive studies and other. Starting from the intersection of science and culture, we wish to map out new academic territories and with this special volume, showcase current directions in the field. As always, we are especially interested in the work of early-career scholars, doctoral students, and postdocs who pursue interdisciplinary, practice-based research.


The deadline for submission of papers is 31 July 2023.

We welcome the submission of FULL ARTICLES (5000-6000 words) and BOOK REVIEWS (800-1000 words); please get in touch if there is a book you would like to review. If you are unsure if your article is a good fit for Pulse, or you’d like to talk through an idea you have, please contact our editors by email. For submission guidelines CLICK HERE.
