    The Great War, the Russian Civil War, and the Invention of Big Science.Alexei Kojevnikov - 2002 - Science in Context 15 (2):239-275.
    ArgumentThe revolutionary transformation in Russian science toward the Soviet model of research started even before the revolution of 1917. It was triggered by the crisis of World War I, in response to which Russian academics proposed radical changes in the goals and infrastructure of the country’s scientific effort. Their drafts envisioned the recognition of science as a profession separate from teaching, the creation of research institutes, and the turn toward practical, applied research linked to the military and industrial needs of (...)

    Introduction: A New History of Russian Science.Alexei Kojevnikov - 2002 - Science in Context 15 (2):177-182.
    Like almost everything in the Soviet Union, the discipline of history of science and technology altered dramatically during the social upheaval of Gorbachev’s perestroika, in some ways that were predictable, and in other ways that were not. One new direction of research that has since grown into a bourgeoning field – the social history of Russian and Soviet science – is represented by the articles in this volume. This short introduction cannot substitute for a real historiographical study, which will probably (...)

    Beyond Weimar Culture – Die Bedeutung der Forman-These für eine Wissenschaftsgeschichte in kulturhistorischer Perspektive.Helmuth Trischler, Cathryn Carson & Alexei Kojevnikov - 2008 - Berichte Zur Wissenschaftsgeschichte 31 (4):305-310.
    Beyond Weimar Culture – The Significance of the Forman Thesis for a Cultural Approach to the History of Science. The famous ‘Forman thesis’, published in 1971, argued for a historical linkage among the intellectual atmosphere of Weimar Germany, popular revolts against determinism and materialism, and the creation of the revolutionary new theory of quantum mechanics. Paul Forman's long essay on “Weimar Culture” has shaped research agendas in numerous fields, from the history and philosophy of physics to German history to the (...)
