Academic Publishing

The Academic Publishing Office's aim is to further by publishing means, the international reputation and impact of LSE’s research and scholarship.


Journals at LSE


The Academic Publishing Office is responsible for LSE-owned peer-reviewed journals, which reflect LSE’s international reputation in research and scholarship in the social sciences: the British Journal of Sociology|, the British Journal of Industrial Relations|, Economica|, the Journal of Global History| and the Journal of Transport Economics and Policy|. See the Journals owned by LSE| web pages for more information.

Two of the LSE-owned journals, the British Journal of Sociology and the British Journal of Industrial Relations, were ranked amongst the top 10 in the world in the 2010 Thomson Reuters ISI impact factor rankings.

The Academic Publishing Office manages the publisher relationships and publishing contracts for LSE-owned journals. The journals unit provides funds to support LSE editors and editorial offices, and for investment in new journals. It also contributes funds to the School for further research and scholarship.

New journals

The Academic Publishing Office is also responsible for the development and launch of new LSE journals.

In addition to the journals owned by LSE, many academic journals of high reputation owned by other organisations are based at the School. For more details on all of these journals, please see the Journals based at LSE web pages.
