Submissions

ISR Submission Guidelines

The ISR, a quarterly journal of revolutionary Marxism, welcomes submissions on theory, history, political analysis, economics, and cultural issues. We prefer articles to be written in an accessible, non-academic style. Attached to, and preferably prior to, your draft submission, we require a short proposal or abstract (one or two paragraphs) that outlines the contents of your proposed article.

Word length varies, but all articles should be at least 3,200 words and no longer than 12,000; book reviews should be between 500 and 2,400, though lengthier feature-length reviews will be considered. Please be sure to include in the Word file of your proposal and/or draft submission your name and contact information, and a brief bio explaining who you are.

The ISR uses the latest edition of the Chicago Manual of Style, including for endnotes, and Merriam-Webster's dictionary for spelling, capitalization, and hyphenation. Please submit all articles to the ISR editors in Microsoft Word, double-spaced, using the Word endnote format.

Editors will reply as soon as we are able to read and confer, so please be patient.
