"History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences is an interdisciplinary journal committed to providing an integrative approach to understanding the life sciences. In specific terms, it welcomes submissions from biologists, historians, philosophers, and scholars in the social study of science that offer broad and interdisciplinary perspectives on the development of biology, especially as these perspectives illuminate both biology's scientific development and its larger role in society…The languages of the journal are English, French,German, and Italian; however, other languages can be considered. Book reviews are published only in English." [Description from the Stazione Zoologica di Napoli website:]

The journal is published quarterly and the website provides tables of contents and abstracts for issues from 2005-2011. The articles from these issues are available online with a paid subscription.
