Published quarterly, History and Philosophy of Logic is devoted to the study of the historical development of logic and its broader philosophical concerns. The journal also deals with general philosophical questions in logic - existential and ontological aspects, the relationship between classical and non-classical logics - including their historical development. In addition it treats the relationships between logic and other fields of knowledge, such as mathematics, physics, philosophy of science, epistemology, linguistics, ontology, psychology, and computing. History and Philosophy of Logic also contains special features on manuscript collections and projects in progress, translations of important or neglected historical texts, and a substantial book review section including essay reviews. Members of the British Logic Colloquium are eligible for a privileged discount rate. Impact Factor-0.318.

The Journal for General Philosophy of Science is a forum for the discussion of a variety of attitudes concerning the philosophy of science. It has as its subject matter the philosophical especially methodological ontological epistemological anthropological and ethical foundations of the individual sciences. Particular emphasis is laid on bringing both the natural the cultural and the technical sciences into a philosophical context within which the historical presuppositions and conditions of the current problems of the philosophy of science are also included in the discussion. The Journal for General Philosophy of Science has been successful in its attempt to serve as a forum that bridges the gap between the different sciences especially the natural cultural and social sciences. One of its purposes is to discuss and contrast the common as well as the different specific methodological and philosophical foundations of the individual sciences taking into account all currently relevant positions of the philosophy of science. In recent years considerable insight has been gained into the problems of current philosophy of science by considering the historical dimension of the sciences. This is why more intensive efforts will be made in the future towards the integration of historical and systematic considerations. The journal contains: articles discussions reports on the state of the philosophy of science in individual countries reviews a bibliography of the major journals in the field of the history and philosophy of science. The journal is of interest to philosophers especially philosophers of science as well as to scholars from the field of the natural cultural social and technical sciences who are interested in becoming aware of the philosophical implications of their disciplines and in being stimulated by the transfer of methods leading ideas concepts and theories from other fields.

The journal is specifically intended to support the development of new computational paradigms stemming from the cross-fertilization of various research fields. These fields include but are not limited to programming (logic constraint functional object-oriented) distributed/parallel computing knowledge-based systems and agent-oriented systems. It also encourages theoretical and/or practical papers concerning all types of learning knowledge discovery evolutionary mechanisms and emergent systems that can lead to key technologies enabling us to build more complex and intelligent systems. The editorial board hopes that New Generation Computing will work as a catalyst among active researchers with broad interests by ensuring a smooth publication process. In more detail the major fields included in the scope of the journal are: Foundations: Real World Complexity Game Theory and Decision Theory Uncertainty and Bounded Rationality Situated Computation Brain Modeling Programming and Architecture: Functional Programming Logic and Constraint Programming Object-Oriented Programming Concurrent Programming Programming Environments Distributed and Parallel Computing: Distributed/Parallel Systems Network Computing Distributed/Parallel Algorithms Intelligent Systems: Cognitive Modeling Agents Intelligence and Communication Amplification Knowledge Media and Ontology Knowledge Based Systems Learning: Inductive Logic Programming Computational Learning Theory Statistical Learning Methods Reinforcement Learning Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining Evolutionary Systems: Evolutionary Computation Emergent Systems Complex Systems

As the distant future of the 21st century wedged its way into the unforgiving past, thereby becoming our present; with it came unprecedented biological and technological discoveries. The convergence of inventions in these disciplines, while welcomed by most, has led to some degree of trepidation of nearly all. Fear of the unknown emerges as we struggle to create meaning to the familiar tune, Red, brown, yellow, black, and white, all are precious. Does the all now include that which is quietly dividing outside the home of a warm uterine lining? Does the all include those who need, but cannot afford to have the transplant, implant, or new identity? Are the all those who affirm choice? Or, does the all exclude those who exercise choice? Do we say hello or goodbye to Dolly? At what point does the gray turn to the more comforting zones of white and black for us? Or, will it ever? And, perhaps more importantly, should gray disappear? These and other issues are but tips of a burgeoning field of ethical issues for which health care providers, philosophers, scientists, theologians, politicians, attorneys, academicians, and other professionals, in addition to the public are forced to grapple with. Hence, it is the purpose of this on-line ethical journal to provide a forum to inform ethical debates from a holistic worldview. Clearly, this approach demands a multicultural, multidisciplinary team of scholars open to challenges of their ontologies. While editors do not purport that readers will be left without a reasonable doubt regarding one's ethical quandaries, what is promised is the presentation of scholarly works known for their veracity and challenges to the commonly believed and generally accepted notions of truth and right. This philosophy demands the presentation of works which are not just expedient for the hour, but which form the basis of principles for the future. Works presented consist of clinical cases studies, poems, songs, art, dilemmas, ethical papers from renown experts and novices, and electronic bulletin board interactive chats, to name a few. Collectively, these varied forms of expression, while endorsed by some, will not be agreeable to all. What is promised though is a forum wherein expression of ideas is valued and encouraged.
