Welcome to Tapuya: Latin American Science, Technology and Society! This is a new, peer-reviewed, open access journal, published by Taylor & Francis, and affiliated to the Asociación Latinoamericana de Estudios Sociales de la Ciencia y la Tecnología (ESOCITE) and the Society for the Social Studies of Science (4S). Tapuya is a project that seeks to challenge current science, technology and society (STS) scholarship while, at the same time, making visible STS research undertaken from Latin American as well as in other peripheral regions.
