Abstract

The study of scientific models has become an active and important focus in history and philosophy of science, and to a lesser extent in sociology of science. Such attention acknowledges that models are central to scientific practice and that they are distinct from both theory and data, but there is a growing realization that modeling practices differ between and within disciplines. This special issue uses this realization to extend the discussion on models into new areas and different uses in the human and social sciences.
