JARS: A New Era Begins

As advertised here, here, and here, The Journal of Ayn Rand Studies begins a new era this year: a collaboration with Pennsylvania State University Press, which will manage all aspects of design, production, distribution, and subscription fulfillment, while leaving the Editorial Board in full charge of the intellectual side of this grand adventure. As I state in the "Editor's Introduction: Change and Continuity," which appears in the new July 2013 issue: "In embarking on this new arrangement, the journal unveils a new look, but retains its commitment to introducing new writers to the ever-expanding world of Rand studies." And what a new look it is!

The New JARS!

The new issue, officially Volume 13, Number 1 (Issue #25, July 2013), features all-new essays, by both former contributers and new ones:

Editor's Introduction: Change and Continuity - Chris Matthew Sciabarra

Rand, Paterson, and the Problem of Anarchism - Stephen Cox

Little Prime Movers: The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged as Young Adult Literature - Will Stockton

Reviews

An End to Over and Against: A Review Essay on two recent Rand biographies: Goddess of the Market: Ayn Rand and the American Right, by Jennifer Burns; and Ayn Rand and the World She Made, by Anne C. Heller. Review by Robert L. Campbell

Readers can access abstracts for the above essays here, and contributor biographies here.

And let me remind readers that Pennsylvania State University Press now offers print-only, online-only, and print-and-online subscriptions; online subscribers will have access to fully searchable essays, along with essays from every back issue published by JARS since its 1999 inception (back issues are already indexed for viewing on JSTOR, and we are now an affiliated journal of the Council of Editors of Learned Journals).

To order or renew subscriptions, fill out the form for mail-in or follow the links for online processing here.

Our year-end issue, due out in December 2013, promises to be even more exciting; it will be significantly larger than our July 2013 PSUP debut, with many provocative essays. Stay tuned! And enjoy...
