DEMESCI - The Journal of Deliberative Mechanisms in Science

The 2014 issue is now available!


The Journal of Deliberative Mechanisms in Science (DEMESCI) is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes original works on the relationship between science and the rest of society. Specifically, the articles provide insight into the growing dimensions of Public Engagement with Science. DEMESCI is oriented towards the academic world, stakeholders and all types of collectives interested in the boom especially during the last two decades of participatory activities and methodologies. In this respect, DEMESCI intends to come up with a better critical understanding of the conceptualization and potential application of these mechanisms in different contexts.

DEMESCI is a multidisciplinary journal that will publish articles based on disciplines such as Sociology, History, and Political Science, among others. DEMESCI also promotes the transdisciplinary character of science, encouraging the submission of articles that combine these and other approaches in a single academic work. We then expect scholars from successful fields of study such as Science & Technology Studies to submit their articles as well.

The journal will be published by Hipatia Press. Articles in English, Spanish, German and Catalan are welcome. All research articles will be available on open access. DEMESCI does not charge Article Processing Charges (APCs) to its authors for publication.

The journal is now indexed with and included in GIGA IZ, WorldCat, SHERPA/RoMEO, Google ScholarWZB, EZB, and MIAR.
