The Bentham Project has recently been working in association with UCL Library Services on the JISC-funded EPICURE project (E-Publishing Infrastructure Capitalising on UCL’s Repositories), which has introduced a model for e-publishing across the college.
Our open-access forum for debate and discussion of all aspects of Bentham’s life and thought, and utilitarianism more generally, the Journal of Bentham Studies, was selected as the pilot publication for this project. Work was carried out to reformat all of the articles published since the journal’s inception in 1997, and transfer them to new, more attractive home. The Bentham Project are delighted to say that this work is now complete. The Journal can now be accessed via http://ojs.lib.ucl.ac.uk/index.php/jbs, and its archive from http://ojs.lib.ucl.ac.uk/index.php/jbs/issue/archive.
This year’s volume (vol. 13) contains the following papers:
- Brian Cox (Independent researcher), Guardianship and Parental Relations: Connections and Departures in Jeremy Bentham’s Account
- Philip Schofield (UCL), Jeremy Bentham and the British Intellectual Response to the French Revolution
- David Stack (Reading), Bentham and Birth Control: The Misreading
If you have any queries or comments regarding the journal, please contact Tim Causer (firstname.lastname@example.org).We are very grateful to the generous funding from JISC which made this work possible.
