SHAC has reliably kept up the most astounding models of grant in all parts of the historical backdrop of speculative chemistry and science from early times to the present. The Society has a wide universal participation all through the world. SHAC hold gatherings, offer insightful prizes and gives, and distribute the diary Ambix twice in a year. It has a Graduate Network to unite postgraduate understudies in the field. This society is founded by the combining effort of J.R. Partington (1886-1965), Frank Sherwood Taylor (1897-1956) and Douglas McKie (1896-1967). By this time the Society is managed by a Council of 13 to 18 members. The Council normally meets twice a year and it consists of five officers: Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer, Membership Secretary, and Editor of Ambix. Further roles are carried out by members of Council or by observers at Council. The Annual General Meeting of the Society is held in the Autumn of each year. The Society is registered as a charity (nr. 313777) in England and Wales and is governed by its Constitution, which was last ameliorated in December 2014.
The Society publishes the scholarly journal Ambix and the newsletter Chemical Intelligence. In 2013, SHAC is proud to announce the launch of a new series of monograph-length supplements, Sources of Alchemy and Chemistry. This series will provide critical editions and English translations of some of the foundational texts in the history of alchemy and early chemistry.
The Society offers the following prizes:
Every year, solicitations are issued to individuals to apply under the Society's Award Scheme. New Scholars Awards to bolster research. These Awards are interested in post-graduate understudies and the individuals who have acquired a PhD inside 5 years. Subject Development Awards to bolster exercises, for example, classes, workshops, colloquia, address arrangement, meeting sessions, gatherings, presentations and effort exercises that backing either the historical backdrop of science or history of speculative chemistry as scholastic subjects.Read More»
