From March 2017, Working USA (published by Wiley-Blackwell) is changing its name to The Journal of Labor and Society. The new title reflects the reconstituted journal’s commitment to publishing peer-reviewed scientific research into the social, political, economic and cultural conditions faced by workers worldwide. The Journal of Labor and Society will publish articles aiming at an open and critical analysis of labor movements, viewing these as a force that is central to the long-term interests of the working class. The editors place a premium on rigorous scientific scholarship that articulates the social position of different groups of workers within the context of the imperialist world economy. The journal also aims to provide a forum for unprejudiced examination of the history and current practice of leftist states and parties, the obstacles they have faced and their relative successes and failures in overcoming them.
As befitting its academic status, the journal will not adopt any specific political or moral positions. This means that we will publish articles of notable scholarly merit, even those deemed controversial from the point of view of popular or established opinion. At the same time, we are committed to having a common ideological thread of labor internationalism run throughout every issue of the journal. The journal will provide excellent analysis and essential information not only to academics, politicians, civil servants, legislators and activists, but to all who wish to see a more just and democratic dispensation for the majority of the world’s population whose labor underpins society in all its dimensions.
