Scholarly Societies Project

Chronological List of Early Independent Journals

This area is concerned with "independent journals" - that is, with journals that were not published by scholarly societies. In point of fact, in the early years of their existence, the independent journals served primarily as a vehicle for reviewing works of original reseach that were located in monographs or in the journals published by scholarly societies.

The bulk of the abbreviations of these independent journals were located through perusal of the first few hundred pages of Band 1 of Pogg..

The history of the editorship of this journal is a bit complex. In an entry in vol.1, cols.316-317 of Pogg. on Brugnatelli, Lodovigo (Luigi) Gasparo (1761-1818), we find a note explaining that L. Brugnatelli edited / published this journal by himself at the beginning, and later with Brunacci, Configliachi, and his own son Gasparo Brugnagelli. So, over time this journal actually had two different editors with the surname Brugnatelli - father and son.
