Its first stage covered the late XIX - early XX century, when irregular studies on S&T history were conducted in universities.

The third stage was marked by conceptualization of S&T history studies in 1928, and organization of a specialized commission at the UAS on studies of the development of scientific thought in Ukraine, which, however, was not realized due to mass-scale repressions starting in 1929.
