The Global Critical Realist Community

IACR: the International Association for Critical Realism

IACR is the global academic society for critical realism, which organises an annual conference and publishes the Journal of Critical Realism (see below). You can join by taking out an individual subscription to the journal. IACR also maintains a mailing list for news of conferences; you can ask to be added to this by emailing Lene Nyhus, the General Secretary.

JCR: Journal of Critical Realism

The flagship journal of critical realism, published 5 times a year. JCR welcomes submissions from scholars in all disciplines and at all stages of their career.

CCR: The Centre for Critical Realism

Founded by Roy Bhaskar in 1996, the CCR was responsible for establishing IACR and the journal Alethia, the precursor of the JCR. It continues today as the editorial board of the Routledge Critical Realism book series. We welcome new book proposals. CCR also works to develop the global digital presence of critical realism, including maintaining this web site.
