KR combines the sustained and detailed investigation of academic research with longform journalism – it is accessible whilst sacrificing 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 stockists, click here), as well as Berlin, New York, and Paris.
Anyone is invited to submit pieces for magazine publication, both online and in print. While we accept abstracts and articles on a wide 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 email@example.com.
