Abstract

Research in the history of scienti?c innovations reveals that apart from the usual textbook presentations of how science advances, there are-especially in the early, private stages of individual scientists' work-a great number of different procedures in actual use of which the final published papers rarely give even a hint. Examples of these often essential but largely hidden mechanisms of scientific innovation are given from the study of works by Johannes Kepler, Henri Poincaré, Enrico Fermi, and the discoverers of high-temperature superconductivity.
