The Journal of Ayn Rand Studies welcomes papers from every discipline and from a variety of interpretive and critical perspectives.
is a nonpartisan journal devoted to the study of Ayn Rand and her times. The journal is not aligned with any advocacy group, institute, or person. It aims to foster scholarly dialogue through a respectful exchange of ideas. The journal is published biannually. While we publish essays by Objectivists and those influenced by Rand, we are also interested in publishing scholars who work in traditions outside of Objectivism---including those who are critical of Rand's thought. We promote and encourage scholarly give-and-take among diverse elements of the academy. We are now accepting proposals and unsolicited submissions on any aspect of Rand's corpus. We are also looking forward to publishing reviews of any books relevant to Rand studies. Please contact Chris Matthew Sciabarra [chris DOT sciabarra AT nyu DOT edu] if you have any questions about the appropriateness of a particular topic or if you have a specific book review in mind. Be sure to conform to length and stylistic guidelines.
For more information on length, stylistic, and other guidelines, authors should register and submit papers through Editorial Manager.
