The Irish Review is a refereed journal. Since it first appeared in 1986 it has established itself as a journal of record. It provides a forum for critical and creative writing in English and Irish. Its editorial policy is pluralist and interdisciplinary; pluralist in its commitment to involving writers from all parts of the island and from other countries; interdisciplinary in its desire to publish articles on the arts, society, philosophy, history, politics, the environment and science. The aim is to serve a general rather than a specialist readership.
Cork University Press aims to stimulate Irish learning by reflecting distinctive and distinguished scholarship in its lists. The Press began publishing in 1925 and is the oldest university press in Ireland. Its philosophy has been to encourage a broad spectrum of debate in the field of Irish Studies by publishing research which engages with contemporary cultural debate. Owing to the spread of Irish Studies in third level (university) institutions during recent decades, throughout North America, Europe and Australia, research in the field has increased in depth and range. Our list reflects this growth in its engagement with a variety of discourses.
