Reminder! If we want to have a panel at next year's PSA Annual Conference we need to get a proposal in by October 1. I would be able to do something about Marxism and Artificial Intelligence, and/or engage in a debate about the book The First Marx. If you have ideas, please get in touch with both David Bates and me – our email addresses can be found as part of the Specialist Group website.
Studies in Marxism is gradually moving into Kindle format, with paper copies also being available. Although, unfortunately, this involves dealing with Amazon, the upshot is a very cheap and cost effective way of doing things. Studies in Marxism volume 16 will be appearing quite soon. Some past volumes are already available: look on the Amazon website. Hopefully President Biden will nationalise Amazon before too long! If you would like to submit an article or book review for Studies in Marxism, please submit it in whatever format you like to both the editors, Mark Cowling and David Bates, whose email addresses can be found as part of this website. If the article is accepted you will be expected to get it into house style.
The above file should give you an account of the appropriate format for articles in Studies in Marxism. As indicated elsewhere, articles may be submitted to Studies in Marxism in any format, but, once accepted, you will be expected to get articles into house style.
