Scope

Theory & Science welcomes the submission of papers from practitioners of any scientific discipline whose work comments on the nature of theory, science, and social change. While papers on abstruse and specialized theoretical topics are encouraged, the editor also requests that authors attempt to develop interdisciplinary "common ground." Thus, Theory & Science is intended to serve as an outlet for ground-breaking ideas, while it also serves as a forum for broadened theoretical dialogue in the sciences.
