About us

In-Spire is an electronic journal based at Keele University’s Research Institute for the Social Sciences.

We specialise in producing bi-annual issues based on original research across the social sciences.

Our core subject areas are:

  • international relations / global politics
  • all aspects of the environment in the social sciences, including environmental politics, environmental law, environmental sociology, et al.
  • criminology
  • media and communications
  • law and legal studies
  • gender and sexuality
  • ethics
  • sociology
  • political and social philosophy

We welcome submissions on all of these themes. Please see the submission guidelines for details.
In-Spire also solicits book reviews broadly covering these subjects.



In-Spire began in 2003 as the in-house journal of the School of Politics, International Relations, the Environment and Philosophy (SPIRE) at Keele University. The journal has gradually been adapted to reflect the re-organisation of the university and changes in the academic environment in general.
