Russell is devoted to the study of all aspects of Bertrand Russell's thought as well as his life, times and influence. In addition to original research and reviews of new books, Russell publishes new texts and textual studies, discussions, bibliographies, indexes, and archival lists. Scholarly articles submitted to the journal are peer-reviewed twice anonymously. Russell is not the organ of any association or institution.

Russell is published by McMaster University's Bertrand Russell Research Centre with the assistance of grants from the Aid to Scholarly Journals programme of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and from McMaster's Faculty of Humanities.


  • Note: Russell (ISSN 1913-8032) was founded by McMaster Library in 1971 as a quarterly newsletter, and until 1980 it was numbered by cumulative issue number. A new series was begun as Vol. 1, no. 1, in Summer 1981. 
  • Open Access: Access to the Summer 2021 issue (vol. 40, no. 1) is now open. Access to the two most recent issues is by subscription. Beginning with the Summer 2021 issue, Russell shifted to a 12-month moving wall.
