Ambix is a peer-reviewed academic journal on the history of chemistry and alchemy that was established in 1937. It was not published from 1939 to 1945. It was one of the first journals of the history of science in the English-speaking world, preceded by Isis (1912) and Annals of Science (1936). It is currently published for the Society for the History of Alchemy and Chemistry by Maney Publishing. The name of the journal comes from the Greek word for a still-head , which later gave rise to the word alembic.
