CALL FOR PAPERS
Critique of Political Economy (www.copejournal.org) (COPE), a new,
interdisciplinary, refereed journal devoted to the critique of political
economy, is a project of the International Working Group on Value Theory
(www.iwgvt.org). Edited by Alan Freeman (University of Greenwich, UK) and
Andrew Kliman (Pace University, New York, USA), with the assistance of a
working editorial board, COPE will initially appear annually and be
primarily an online journal. The first volume is scheduled for publication
in March 2007.
COPE seeks to challenge and break down the separation between political
economy and social knowledge as a whole. Our editorial board includes
scholars in the fields of education, philosophy, political science,
sociology, as well as economics and accounting. We invite submissions from
researchers working in these and related fields, including researchers from
outside of academia. Contributions from the whole gamut of heterodox
economic traditions including (but not limited to) the Marxist,
post-Keynesian, Evolutionary, Schumpeterian, and Institutionalist
traditions are welcome.
We particularly encourage contributions that interrogate the production of
economic knowledge and contributions that help to challenge the received
Whig History of economic thought. We also particularly encourage papers
from scholars in the global South, papers dealing with the temporal
single-system interpretation (TSSI) of Marxs value theory, and other
TSSI-informed theoretical and empirical research.
COPE is steadfastly committed to pluralism. We intend to challenge other
journals exclusionary practices, and the acceptance of such practices, by
demonstrating that critical pluralistic norms promote quality research and
genuine development of ideas. We uphold authors right to appeal editorial
decisions before a panel of disinterested persons, and the right of authors
to reply to critiques of their work. We employ a double-blind review
process, and COPEs editorial board will work with authors to improve and
clarify their work, not act as gatekeepers. Although only submissions
accepted for publication become part of COPE, other submissions that
conform to the Scholarship Guidelines of the International Working Group on
Value Theory, our parent organization, will be made available on our website
as working papers.
We encourage you to read our complete Mission Statement,
available on our website, www.copejournal.org.
