Local Population Studies Society

The journal Local Population Studies

The journal Local Population Studies was first published as a newsletter and magazine in 1968. Since then it has become a more formal journal. It is published bi-annually and is the world's only journal on matters relating to population within a local or community context. Its emphasis is on Great Britain, but occasional articles about other local communities are published. Subscription to Local Population Studies is included within membership of the LPSS. For details of how to subscribe to the Society see the Contact page. For details of submitting articles to LPS see the Journal Submissions page.

This page contains shortened contents for each issue since issue 80. Contents of other back issues can be found through the numbered links on the left hand menu. Alternatively, there is an author index for issues 1-60. The Back Issues page gives details of how to order paper copies of the journal.
