Information, Society and Justice is a peer-review, open-access electronic journal based in the Department of Applied Social Sciences (DASS) at London (UK) Metropolitan University. It seeks to provide a proactive space for critical discussion of the linkages between social information, justice and democracy. It will focus on issues of equality, human rights, social inclusion, economic justice, and struggles for liberation and democratic expansion.

Creative work on these themes will also be considered. ISJ is expected to be published twice a year. The first issue is expected to be published in November 2007. Articles should be submitted to Shiraz Durrani at s.durani@londonmet.ac.uk.
