The Rutherford Journal is a New Zealand peer-reviewed academic journal that covers the history and philosophy of science and technology.[1][2][3]

It publishes invited articles and is edited by Jack Copeland (University of Canterbury). The journal is published annually and was established in December 2005 by Copeland.[4] Full text of articles is freely available online in HTML format.

In 2010 the journal published "A Special Issue on the History of Computing". Other past issues have focused on Alan Turing, cognitive science, and artificial intelligence.

The Rutherford Journal is named after the chemist and physicist Ernest Rutherford (1871–1937), a New Zealander, who studied for a BA at the Canterbury College (Christchurch) in 1890.[5]
