LSE was founded with the purpose of understanding the causes of things and for the betterment of society. Today, LSE is a world-leading social science research institution with global impact, where scholarly values are upheld and societal issues are publicly debated from a diversity of viewpoints.
Launched in May 2018, LSE Press will support the promotion of high quality social science research and enable wide public access through the use of open, digital publication methods. We will publish books and journals and will encourage and facilitate innovative and experimental publications. As the LSE Press is established our focus will be on publishing the research of LSE authors.
The LSE Research Committee acts as the editorial board for the LSE Press and publication proposals will be reviewed by members of the Committee. All proposals are subject to rigorous, subject specific peer-review prior to publication.
