Science Museum Group Journal

The new Science Museum Group Journal presents the global research community with peer-reviewed papers relevant to the wide-ranging work of the Science Museum Group. The journal freely shares the research of four national UK museums and warmly invites contributions that resonate with their collections and practice.

In this issue of the Science Museum Group Journal articles include an exploration of the use of theatre in the display of particle physics, a discussion of a research project (and exhibition) re-evaluating the search for longitude, and a description of a participatory process to co-create an electronic music exhibition. Other articles look at what the relationship between Harrison and Short can tell us about the eighteenth-century concept of ‘genius’, and delve into museum collections to unearth extraordinary images and an overlooked scrapbook.
