Cosmos and History: The Journal of Natural and Social Philosophy

Cosmos and History: The Journal of Natural and Social Philosophy is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal of natural and social philosophy. It serves those who see philosophy's vocation in questioning and challenging prevailing assumptions about ourselves and our place in the world, developing new ways of thinking about physical existence, life, humanity and society, so helping to create the future insofar as thought affects the issue. Philosophy so conceived is not exclusively identified with the work of professional philosophers, and the journal welcomes contributions from philosophically oriented thinkers from all disciplines.

Be Read With Open-Access Journals
Open-access journals offer free access to articles and broaden the readership of publications beyond the restrictions of traditional commercial publishing. A guide to open-access journals can be found here: In the last 12 month period Cosmos and History has around 28,110,163 ‘hits’ (up from 900,000 the year before), this equates to more than 210,000 ‘unique visits’. However, what really matters is article downloads; most articles are accessed by users more than once a day and some articles are being downloaded as often as 10 times a day. The 'open' and non-commercial nature of C&H means that articles can be freely accessed by all researchers in a timely and convenient manner whether they are associated with big research institutions or are private scholars.

Cosmos and History uses the industry recognised COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of Networked Electronic Resources) statistics system.
