SPARC Partners with New Labor Studies Journal

SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition; announced a partnership with Labor: Studies in Working Class History in the Americas, a new journal founded by the entire editorial board of Labor History, a commercial title owned by Taylor & Francis. The press release states: "As SPARC's first partnership in the humanities, the alliance with Labor broadens SPARC's reach into another field plagued by disproportionate prices for commercial journals and a lack of competitive alternatives." The new journal will be launched by the Duke University Press in February 2004.

The new journal was created in response to "irreconcilable differences" between the editorial board and Taylor & Francis. According to Leon Fink, the former editor in chief of Labor History and editor of the new Labor, the principal issue was maintaining the journal's editorial independence. More than 40 people associated with the Taylor and Francis journal have joined Fink at the new Labor journal, including four associate editors, the book review editor, the six-person editorial committee, and the 30 contributing editors.

Labor, the new journal, is available for $200 for print, which is 20-percent less than the commercial title. Labor is $180 for electronic-only subscriptions. Labor will publish four issues annually. For more information:
