Below you will find some information on an interesting new journal and a call for papers.

International Critical Thought (ICT), an English-language quarterly, hosted by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and published by Routledge in UK since March 2011, is now calling for submissions.


The journal has arisen as a response to recent developments that have called into question the international capitalist order and have led many in the world to call for fundamental change. It aims to serve the Marxist and other leftist scholars in their reflections upon the past and their inquiries into the future, with an emphasis laid on the coalescence of social concern with academic rigor, and the bettering of the reality through a better understanding of it. As a 21-century forum, ICT strongly supports cultural diversity and intellectual openness, and is most willing to facilitate dialogues not just within the left community but also between the left and other currents of social thought. As a journal based in China, it also lends an extra attentive ear to the developing world's experience, for instance, on China's rise and what this means to the world in general and the world socialism in particular.


As a publication outlet for Left scholarship across the world, ICT welcomes studies in various academic disciplines employing different research tools. We also welcome contributions in forms other than original article, such as interview, book review, and the review of a conference, organization, periodical, and event that can be generally categorized as leftist.


To submit a manuscript, please go to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/rict and create your ScholarOne account for online submission. The length of contributions may vary between 2,000 (for a book review for example) and a maximum of 8,000 words (for original articles). Submissions should follow the Chicago Manual of Style in writing and citation. To have a better idea about the journal, you may check the sample issue on line at http://www.tandfonline.com/rICT, which also contains the journal information such as aims and scope, editorial board, and guidelines for contributors. For further information, please contact us via email at ict at cass.org.cn.


We look forward to hearing from you.


Sincerely yours,


Cheng, Enfu (Chief Editor, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences)
