The Isis Current Bibliography of the History of Science turned 100 this year. This bibliography surveys recent publications in the history of science.  It covers all disciplines and time periods.

The bibliography was begun in 1913 by the historian of science George Sarton as part of his new journal Isis, and it has been published continuously since then.  The editorial office of the bibliography is located at the University of Oklahoma and is edited by Stephen P. Weldon.

The print version of the bibliography comes out annually, and is mailed with the December issue of the journal Isis.  Access to the bibliographic data is also available online through EBSCO’s HistSciTechMed database, which can be accessed through many libraries in North America and some institutions outside of North America.  All members of the History of Science Society have access to this database as part of their membership.
