  1. Editorial Work and the Peer Review Economy of STS Journals.Maria Amuchastegui, Kean Birch & Wolfgang Kaltenbrunner - 2022 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 47 (4):670-697.
    In this paper, we analyze the role of science and technology studies journal editors in organizing and maintaining the peer review economy. We specifically conceptualize peer review as a gift economy running on perpetually renewed experiences of mutual indebtedness among members of an intellectual community. While the peer review system is conventionally presented as self-regulating, we draw attention to its vulnerabilities and to the essential curating function of editors. Aside from inherent complexities, there are various shifts in the broader political–economic (...)

  • Epistemic Living Spaces, International Mobility, and Local Variation in Scientific Practice.Sarah R. Davies - 2020 - Minerva 58 (1):97-114.
    This article explores local variations in scientific practice through the lens of scientists’ international mobility. Its aim is twofold: to explore how the notion of epistemic living spaces may be mobilised as a tool for systematically exploring differences in scientific practice across locations, and to contribute to literature on scientific mobility. Using material from an interview study with scientists with experience of international mobility, and epistemic living spaces as an analytical frame, the paper describes a set of aspects of life (...)

  • Navigating Uncertainty: Early Career Academics and Practices of Appraisal Devices.Jonatan Nästesjö - 2021 - Minerva 59 (2):237-259.
    There is a lack of objective evaluative standards for academic work. While this has been recognized in studies of how gatekeepers pass judgment on the works of others, little is known about how scholars deal with the uncertainty about how their work will be evaluated by gatekeepers. Building upon 35 interviews with early career academics in political science and history, this paper explores how junior scholars use appraisal devices to navigate this kind of uncertainty. Appraisal devices offer trusted and knowledgeable (...)
