Dear all,

I am glad to announce the availability of a new online resource at the University of Geneva: an "Interactive Historical Atlas of the Disciplines". The website is in open access here:

This atlas aims at mapping the evolution of the (thematic) disciplinary structure of science over time, as well as tracing back the successive redefinitions of scientific disciplines throughout the centuries. Furthermore, the project is open to scholarly (reviewed) participation: each disciplinary map comes with dedicated tools for adding content or bibliographic entries.
