New Section in Annalen der Physik
By Christian Joas and Dieter Hoffmann
With its 2012 re-launch, the venerable physics journal “Annalen der Physik” has allocated space for a new section dedicated to the history of physics. This section, entitled “Then & Now,” aims at fostering conversations between professional historians of science and physicists interested in the history of their field. It features short essays of about 3 pages on topics from the history of physics at a level appealing to both historians and physicists alike.
As section editors for “Then & Now,” we would like to invite your contributions. Please contact either of us at cjoas@ mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de or dh@mpiwgberlin. mpg.de if you have any questions or ideas for potential articles. We look forward to your contributions.
