Philosophy of Science is a peer-reviewed academic journal published by the University of Chicago Press on behalf of the Philosophy of Science Association. The journal contains essays, discussion articles, and book reviews in the field of the philosophy of science. The first issue of Philosophy of Science appeared in January 1934, in which editor William Malisoff sought papers ranging from studies on "the analysis of meaning, definition, symbolism," in scientific theories to those on "the nature and formulation of theoretical principles" and "in the function and significance of science within various contexts." [1]

Past editors have included William Malisoff, C. West Churchman, Richard Rudner, Kenneth Shaffner, Robert E. Butts, Merrilee Salmon, Philip Kitcher, Noretta Koertge, Michael Dickson, and Jeffrey A. Barrett.[2]
