Journals publishing at UCL
UCL Press is pleased to announce that it publishes the following journals, hosted on Ingenta Connect:
Architecture_MPS was established as an Open Access journal in 2012 and addresses the growing interest in the social and political interpretation of the built environment from a multi-disciplinary perspective. It draws on experts who can bring emerging issues of international importance to the English-speaking community, and it has published high-profile academics and emerging voices from multiple countries, including notable international figures such as Noam Chomsky and Kenneth Frampton. By linking its publications with a range of research programmes and conferences it further raises awareness of the social importance of architecture. The founder and Principal Editor of Architecture_MPS is Dr Graham Cairns, an author and academic currently at Columbia University, New York. He is also director of the journal's non-profit research group AMPS C.I.O. The Academic Editor is Professor Murray Fraser of the Bartlett School of Architecture, who is also Vice-Dean of Research for UCL's Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment.
Jewish Historical Studies: Transactions of the Jewish Historical Society of England
First published in 1893, The Journal of the Jewish Historical Society of
England, Jewish Historical Studies: Transactions of the Jewish Historical Society of England is known to many as Transactions. The journal aims to serve as a leading forum for Anglo-Jewish historiography, as well as comparative and multi-site work that integrates English-speaking Jews in its approach.
In addition to scholarly articles, the journal includes contributions that derive from presentations to the Society. The journal will also publish contributions to Jewish history, reflecting the interests and concerns of the parent body, the JHSE, as well as the Society’s annual Presidential Address. The Journal is edited by Professor Michael Berkowitz, Professor of Modern Jewish History at UCL.
The Journal of the Sylvia Townsend Warner Society
Sylvia Townsend Warner (1893-1978) was a highly individual writer of novels, short stories and poems, and a contemporary of writers such as Virginia Woolf and Djuna Barnes.
Although there has been a revival of Sylvia Townsend Warner's work in recent years, she remains an under-appreciated figure. The Journal of the Sylvia Townsend Warner Society aims to create a wider interest in this brilliant, original and witty writer. Featuring scholarly articles, previously unpublished archival works by Warner, and pieces by well-known contemporary writers describing their appreciation of Warner, the journal is now being published twice a year by UCL Press, online in open access form, providing access to a much wider readership.
The London Journal of Canadian Studies
The LJCS is an interdisciplinary journal specialising in Canadian history, politics and society and has been published annually since 1984. Many leading UK Canadianists based at the University of London and UCL have been associated with it during its 30-year history. The current editor of the LJCS is Dr Tony McCulloch, Senior Fellow in North American Studies at the UCL Institute of the Americas and President of the British Association for Canadian Studies.
