    About

    LSE Press

    The London School of Economics and Political Science 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. Open Access publishing – making important scholarly work accessible to everyone – therefore accords with LSE’s role as the global convenor of influential debates on these critical issues.

    Launched in May 2018, LSE Press supports the promotion of high-quality social science research and enables wide public access through the use of open, digital publication methods. We publish books and journals and encourage and facilitate innovative and experimental publications.

    LSE Press works with authors to develop and launch publications that reflect the LSE founding purpose and mission.  

    Guiding principles:


    Get in touch to have an initial conversation about your next book, journal or to send us a full proposal: LSE.Publishing@lse.ac.uk

    The LSE Research Committee has overall responsibility for the LSE Press. Publication proposals will be reviewed by members of the Editorial Board and external peer reviewers. All proposals are subject to rigorous, subject specific peer-review prior to publication.

    Student work is published through our Houghton St Press imprint, both as part of taught programmes and as discrete student-led publication enterprises.


    Editorial Board

    The LSE Press editorial board meets five times in each academic year and will ensure that the quality of scholarly work published by the Press meets the high standards of LSE and is aligned with the intellectual strategy of the Press.
