Science permeates contemporary culture at multiple levels, from the technology in our daily lives to our dreams of other worlds in fiction.

It strongly reinforces interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research, opening up new possibilities for inquiry across and between the humanities and sciences.

Influences of science on popular culture may be direct or tangential, stark or subtle, overt or inexplicit. Similarly, the role of popular culture in framing and influencing science extends from the blatant to the almost imperceptible. Whatever form they take, these interactions warrant academic analysis.

Working with a distinguished international board, the Journal of Science & Popular Culture aims to create a unique forum in which to analyse, chronicle, and interpret this diverse landscape through original research articles, editorials, book and new media reviews, notes and essays. The journal also provides a site where emerging and established scholars can access salient knowledge and cutting-edge research. Contributions from academics, scientists, communicators, industry professionals and practitioners with an interest in the science and society interface are invited.
