Analecta. Studies and Materials for the History of Science (ISSN 1509-0957; Index 351318) – scientific journal published by the Institute for the History of Science, Polish Academy of Sciences.

Published since 1992 as a semi-annual magazine (two issues per year). In terms of substance, this journal is a continuation of the series “Studies and Materials for the History of the Polish Science” initiated over 50 years ago.

Analecta benefited from the rich tradition of the series but adopted a different formula and diverse methodological assumptions. This journal addresses original, never-before-printed scientific works on the history of all branches of science in Poland and in the world. Analecta offers both extensive treatises and shorter texts covering various aspects of the history of scientific knowledge in different periods, described from diverse points of view.

The editorial board does not publish reports about scientific life or communications. Starting from No. 1/2014, a regular column has been introduced: Nova Litteraria, which presents reviews of new books on the history of science.

All articles published in this journal are pre-reviewed by independent external experts. The authors of the publication are historians of science from around the country and abroad. See⇒ Analecta review form
