Writing and editing
In need of expansion
- Timeline of scientific discoveries - needs a lot of expansion and improvement; each time you work on another subject, check to see if relevant discoveries are present in the timeline
- History of materials science
- Atomic theory
- Theodosius Dobzhansky
- Lise Meitner
- Natural philosophy
- History of optics - work in progress - needs medieval to modern coverage
- Natural history - very bare, with some dubious information
- History of genetics - expand timelines into prose
- Heredity - is currently very poor, very short, and does not go back into concepts of heredity before the late 19th century in any appreciable sense.
- Max Delbrück
- History of zoology, post-Darwin - partly from EB 1911, in bad shape; needs copyediting as well. Now included in the Zoology navigation template; high priority, needs to incorporate the other good history of biology articles where appropriate
- History of zoology (before Darwin) - partly from EB 1911, in bad shape; needs copyediting as well. High priority; in Zoology navigation template
- The relationship between religion and science - partially historical. Needs a stronger framework, discussion of different models for the relationship (conflict thesis, NOMA, etc.) and either a link to a historical main article or a significant expansion of the historical part.
- science studies
- Silent Spring - needs section on historical significance, and better description of its contents; the only two sections of prose after the intro are currently Criticism and Vindication?, neither of which has much, if anything, worth keeping.
- History of science in the Renaissance (links from history of science box)
- History of molecular biology (see also molecular biology and Molecular structure of Nucleic Acids
- Conflict thesis (aka, warfare model, Draper-White thesis) - The idea of a war between science and religion, which common in the historiography of sciece from the late 19th to the mid-20th centuries, and is still common among non-historians.
- Henri Becquerel
- Sofya Yanovskaya
- History of paleontology - new article needs help from 19th century on
- Biochemist Marianne Grunberg-Manago
- United States technological and industrial history - Overlaid a table of contents and headers, but mostly empty as original article was largely abandoned as a stub
- Space medicine - I've started building this page up but could use some helpShannon bohle 01:36, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
- Space spinoffs - I've started this page, which focuses on the historical applications of space research and development: areas include engineering, health/medicine, computers, etc.Shannon bohle 01:59, 1 December 2007 (UTC)
- Harry Collins
- Bruno Latour
- Ludwig Wittgenstein
- Trevor Pinch
- Science and technology in the Soviet Union and Suppressed research in the Soviet Union needs expansion, better integration of the two articles, and balance. I've left comments on the talk pages of each article outlining what I think the articles need. Peter G Werner (talk) 01:58, 3 July 2012 (UTC)
- Missing scientist articles
Nils Eckholm - associated with early studies of CO2 and climate change
Robert L. Hill - biochemist, Duke University http://www.asbmb.org/uploadedfiles/aboutus/asbmb_history/past_presidents/1970s/1976hill.html should be correct object of link on page http://en.wikipedia.org/wikipedia/List_of_participants_in_the_Evolving_Genes_and_Proteins_symposium
Edith M. Taylor (1899-1993) - researcher at Connaught Laboratories (ctrl+f in article for context and relevant references). She made key contributions to the development of the diphtheria toxoid and tetanus toxoid. Find bio info at Museum of Healthcare at Kingston biographies.
Peter J. Moloney (1891-1989) - researcher at Connaught Laboratories (ctrl+f in article for context and relevant reference). He made key contributions to the development of insulin production methods and the diphtheria toxoid. Bios available here and here.
- Would this be "Aristotle's views on what we today call physics"? We have an article on Aristotle's Physics but I'm not sure that's what is meant. --Fastfission 18:31, 7 February 2006 (UTC)
- As in (I assume), the system of physics based on Aristotle's work, that was common in some form basically until Newton. Natural motion, natural place and the elements, violent motion, etc.--ragesoss 21:12, 8 February 2006 (UTC)
- Just one, I think; the main separation in Aristotle seems to be life sciences/physics Maestlin 08:01, 12 March 2006 (UTC)
- If the distinction is between Aristotelian natural philosophy (based on the Physics, Generation and corruption, Meteora and the biological works) and the tradition based on the Problemata mechanica attributed to Aristotle (and the various pseudo-Problemata that appeared in the Medieval period), then I think that separate pages are historically justified. —Goclenius 03:16, 8 May 2006 (UTC)
- I think we need to separate Gravity from Gravity theory, but I'm not at all an expert on this. KSchutte 19:14, 12 March 2006 (UTC)
- The page has been created and is currently being developed. I have just added the WikiProject History of Science template to the talk page and would appreciate it if someone could add a rating to the importance scale. -- Zac Δ talk! 10:13, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
- There needs to be an entire new section on how emerging technologies can effect the commercial market, society and other historical events. I'm not sure where this belongs. But I state why I found this page.
- Blue lasers capable of reading at higher data compression where developed, and then as a result the media market shifts from dvd to blue ray. Record to tape, VHS to DVD. Ships and Railways to Airplanes. Bronze to Iron. I mean really important stuff. Where to put it all.
- The history pages relate history, the history of technology pages just talk about the technology of the time. But there isn't any page which singles out, defines, or attempts to summarize events where technological advancement was the primary source of constructive or distruptive, commerical or social change. Where's that page? Am I just not finding it?--Sparkygravity (talk) 14:20, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
- Science in Persia - needs copyediting for tone, style and grammar. Sangak 16:32, 28 February 2007 (UTC)
- Gottfried Leibnitz - hagiographic, massively too big and still growing
- Nuclear arms race
- Scientific Revolution
- Galileo affair
- Genealogy of theoretical physicists, survived AfD, but needs work
- John Harrison - lots of decent text, but needs structure
- Islamic science
- Galileo's Daughter - As of 30 May 2006, reads like a freshman book review
- Nicole Oresme - Relies largely on one
self-published source - see discussion
- Alchemy - Quality varies widely; ignores much of the extensive literature on the History of Alchemy.
- Rudolf Diesel -
as explained on User talk:AQUA212, we should maybe first let this newcomer change their comments to edits, but (someone removed the comments) it'd be good if an expert checked the claimed errors too. --Espoo 14:13, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

- Categories covered
- No known specific categories, but anything under Category:Science stubs probably needs expansion to cover historical aspects.
