Studium is the official journal of Gewina, the Dutch Society for the History of Science and Universities (est. 1913). It is published in co-operation with the Huygens Institute of Netherlands History of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences.

The journal presents scholarly articles and book reviews devoted to the history of science, scholarship and academic culture – in its broadest sense. Even though there is no limitation to any specific period or topic, the journal is especially (although not exclusively) interested in the Low Countries and their former colonies.

Contributions should be original, based upon original research, and written in either English, French, or Dutch. The editorial board applies a double blind peer review procedure in assessing contributions.

Studium is the successor to:


In addition to regular articles, Studium contains a number of sections. Archival and object discoveries are the subject of ‘Pandora’s Box’; new publications in the area of the history of sciences are discussed in the reviews section.
