Complete Bibliography of Eugenie C. Scott


Bibliographic references for all works authored by Eugenie C. Scott are provided, including her contributions to the publications of the National Center for Science Education and to other sources. The publication history of the various NCSE publications is explained.


Dr. Eugenie C. Scott’s contributions to the body of written work about evolution distinguishes her as sui generis: scientist, scholar, educator, leader, and activist. In addition to the publications of the National Center for Science Education, she has published in scientific journals such as Nature and Science, journals in science education—including Evolution: Education and Outreach—and books and periodicals about science, religion, politics, and culture. As well, she has written on topics in physical anthropology, the discipline in which she earned her Ph.D. at the University of Missouri–Columbia, writing about dental evolution in pre-Columbian Peru.

The references below were obtained from the NCSE itself, and from Dr. Scott’s vita, which she supplied. They have been checked for accuracy and completeness. Some papers appear in more than one of the publications listed below and are cross-referenced.

From the General Literature

As would be expected, Dr. Scott has authored journal articles, articles in collections of scholarly contributions, and essays in a range of outlets. Books and articles, including contributions to collections, are listed in the Section "Books and Articles," book reviews in the Section "Reviews of Books and Other Media."

From Memorandum to Committees of Correspondence

The Memorandum started publication in 1981; it was published irregularly. Issues in 1981, 1982, 1983 and 1984 were entitled Memorandum to Liaisons for Committees of Correspondence. It was renamed Creation/Evolution Newsletter in 1984.

From Creation/Evolution Newsletter

One volume per year of six issues each was published, some issues being combined; volumes were numbered 4 through 8.Creation/Evolution Newsletter seems to have been published primarily for the benefit of NCSE’s members. None of the content is available online. In 1987, its name was again changed, to NCSE Reports (see Section "From NCSE Reports" below).

The format for references to works published in Creation/Evolution Newsletter is as follows.

From Creation/Evolution

Creation/Evolution originally began publication under the auspices of the American Humanist Association in 1980, but was acquired by the NCSE in 1990. It was merged with NCSE Reports in 1997, producing Reports of the NCSE (see Section "From Reports of the NCSE" below). Creation/Evolution was published in numbered issues, ending with 39; on the NCSE’s web site for Creation/Evolution (below), volume numbers have been added in retrospect. All back issues are available at in PDF format.
