Minerva is devoted to the study of ideas, traditions, cultures, and institutions in science, higher education, and research. It is equally focused on historical as well as present practices and on local as well as global issues. Moreover, the journal does not represent one single school of thought, but rather welcomes diversity within the rules of rational discourse.

The journal features peer reviewed articles and essay reviews. In addition, special issues are periodically published on themes of topical importance.

Book review proposals and submissions should be sent to minerva@uni-bielefeld.de
