The Heterodox Review
The Heterodox Review is a blind peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal examining sociopolitical issues, in particular the way in which higher education and the media frame these issues.
The Iconoclast is an online multi-author forum for free-form articles. Articles require editorial approval rather than peer-review, and thus can appear online in days rather than months.
The Heterodox Review and Iconoclast do not simply gather fixed, unchanging snapshots of authors’s views, but rather articles that can both generate, and respond to, debate. Articles will be open to moderated comments by members. Based on comments authors can then revise papers and update the article to a new version, with links to the earlier version and comments on what revisions were made placed at the start of the article.
All articles in the Heterodox Review will also be followed by an invitation for counterpoints, where other authors can submit a rebuttal to arguments they disagree with and have a link placed at the top or bottom of the relevant article.
The tendency of academic journals to follow the “volume/issue” format is a holdover from the era of purely print versions, but even online journals still seem to wait to collect several articles and then release them together as an ‘issue’. In contrast, Heterodoxy Review articles are published online based upon the date they are fully approved.
The Association for Sociopolitical Heterodoxy also aims to produce its own line of publications. The first of these will examine the current state of the liberal democratic system from a critical perspective.
