Attention all Lockeans!


Locke Studies is seeking a book review editor. (This is an unpaid, service position.) The book review editor will be responsible for overseeing the reviews of books (and related materials) of interest to the community of Lockeans for the journal. Interested individuals should email an informal statement of interest and their current CV to the editor, Benjamin Hill (bhill28@uwo.ca).

Locke Studies (formerly The Locke Newsletter 1970–2000) is an international, peer-reviewed annual journal dedicated to scholarly research on any aspect of the life and work of the great English philosopher John Locke as well as his intellectual milieu. It serves the community of Locke scholars broadly speaking and encompasses the fields of philosophy, political theory, economics, premodern race studies, postcolonialism and colonial studies, early modern religion and theological studies, literature and critical theory, the histories of science and medicine, and the history of modern liberalism and liberal societies. In 2018, we transitioned to an open-access, electronic publishing model and are one of the few long-established scholarly journals to remain independent of the for-profit publishing environment. We have recently digitized our entire back catalogue of print issues (nearly 50 years’ worth) and released scans of them as open-access items. We have also recently secured a partnership with Érudit, the Public Knowledge Project, and the Canadian Research Knowledge Network to join their Partnership for Open Access consortium. Focusing on improving and increasing our coverage of reviews is the next area of growth and strategic focus for the journal.
