Interscript | UCL Journal of Publishing is an open access academic journal on publishing. It provides a platform that fosters international debate on the constantly evolving nature of the publishing industry. The journal is managed by postgraduate students in the UCL Centre for Publishing and hosted by UCL Press. Interscript departs from traditional issue-based journal publication, and instead publishes its content on a continuous rolling basis.

Think Pieces: A Journal of the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences

Think Pieces aims to showcase exciting, up-and-coming work from a community of scholars, both students and academic staff, at University College London approaching one topic from a cross-disciplinary perspective. This journal is about opening discussions, and inviting varied approaches, methodologies, and academic backgrounds to interact in response to a specific prompt that interrogates an idea, issue, or construct, whose scholarly interpretation is truly multifaceted.

Think Pieces is a space for focused collections of papers, including those presented at the JFIGS Forums and other meetings within the Joint Faculty, to be accessible to a wider audience interested in the development of cross-disciplinary discussion and collaboration in Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences at UCL.

The Journal of Comparative Cultural Inquiry.

The name Tropos derives from the Ancient Greek and is intended to evoke a cluster of meanings. It denotes a particular figure of speech, or a whole mode of rhetoric, but also refers to the spiritual significance concealed behind the literal meaning of religious scripture. The word also indicates a turn or change of direction, and stands for an instantiation of something unrepeatable as opposed to something universal. In this spirit we hope to publish articles that stimulate critical turns of thought and deal with specific phenomena that have the ability to reveal more complex meanings.

Tropos is a journal for the Arts & Humanities, and will publish critical thought on any area of culture, literature, art, film, politics, history, philosophy, and critical theory, as well as other disciplines interacting with these.
