Journal of Critical Realism (JCR)  is the Journal of IACR. It was established in 1997 to foster the discussion, propagation and development of critical realist approaches to understanding and changing the world. It provides a forum for scholars wishing to promote realist emancipatory philosophy, social theory and science on an interdisciplinary and international basis, and for those who wish to engage with such approaches. Material should, as a rule, be directed at an audience across different disciplines with a shared interest in critical realism rather than a specialist disciplinary audience.


The Journal publishes articles, review essays, review symposia, book reviews, debates and postgraduate interventions that relate in some significant way to critical realist approaches. It is committed to encouraging work within the framework of or engaging with all phases of the philosophy of critical realism: original and dialectical critical realism and metaRealism.
