The Reports on the History of Science were founded in 1978 by the science historian Fritz Krafft and published by him until 2007. As a result, Cornelius Borck (Lübeck) took over the editing. During these years the journal acted as the official organ of the Society for the History of Science (GWG). Since the GWG was merged with the German Society for the History of Medicine, Science and Technology (DGGMNT) in the newly founded Society for the History of Science, Medicine and Technology (GWMT) in 2018, the reports have been continued as an independent journal.
