Russell Journal

Members of the Bertrand Russell Society get online access to all issues of Russell: the Journal of Bertrand Russell Studies. Members also get print issues mailed to them during the period of their membership in good standing in the Society. You can browse back issues online at the Russell website.

The scholarly journal Russell, founded in 1971, is edited by Kenneth Blackwell, the Bertrand Russell Archivist at McMaster University. Its editorial board is listed here. A synopsis of its aims and institutional support is given below:

Russell is devoted to the study of all aspects of Bertrand Russell’s thought as well as his life, times and influence. In addition to original research and reviews of new books, Russell publishes new texts and textual studies, discussions, bibliographies, indexes, and archival lists. Scholarly articles submitted to the journal are peer-reviewed twice anonymously. Russell is not the organ of any association or institution.

Russell is published by McMaster University’s Bertrand Russell Research Centre with the assistance of grants from the Aid to Scholarly Journals programme of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and from McMaster’s Faculty of Humanities. (
