KR combines the sustained and detailed investigation that is central to academic research with longform journalism – it is accessible, but sacrifices nothing in the way of depth and discernment.
Besides our online presence, we publish a print issue once a year, available at various shops in Cambridge and London (for a list of stockists click here), as well as Berlin, New York, and Paris. Meanwhile, the online edition is gaining momentum: we attract between 10,000 and 60,000 visitors a month, many of them via Twitter and Facebook. These successes reflect a yearning among readers for engaging, longform commentary on world issues that combines accessible writing and academic rigour.
Anyone – both at King’s and outside – is invited to submit pieces for magazine publication both online and in print. While we accept abstracts and articles on a whole range of topics, we also release a call for submissions announcing the overarching theme for the upcoming print issue.
For questions regarding the magazine, to submit a piece, request a copy of the print publication, or discuss how you might support the magazine, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
