Information Page

Research in Political Economy (RPE) analyses society in a manner consistent with the importance of the role of class. International in scope, the annual volumes deal primarily with economic and political issues and the unity between them. The series presents definitive volumes that bring together significant, international, and rigorous scholarship where both theoretical and empirical works are included.

The series has played an important role in developing the scientific Marxist agenda since 1977. This series provides an intelligent forum for serious radical scholarship that is absent from most mainstream publications.

Research in Political Economy can accept papers up to 20,000 words and thus, in addition to usual journal length papers, is also appropriate for work which is not book length, yet is substantial. While published papers must be appropriate for developing class analysis of society, they need not be explicitly Marxist.  All papers are subject to double-blind peer review and enjoy a quick turnaround from submission to acceptance.

For more details about Emerald's approach to Publication Ethics; please refer to the company guidelines.

RPE is indexed by Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature. Scopus is becoming an essential database to be included in and is regarded by scholars, institutions and librarians as the most important quality stamp for academic journals after Thomson Reuters (ISI). Scopus data influences institutional and regional journal ranking lists. - See more here.
