Since 1977 CapitalClass has been the main independent source for a Marxist critique of global capitalism. Pioneering key debates on value theory domestic labour and the state it reaches out into the labour trade union antiracist feminist environmentalist and other radical movements. It analyses the important political economic and social developments of our time and applies a materialist framework unconstrained by divisions into economics politics sociology or history.Each peer reviewed issue includes both indepth papers and an extensive book reviews section.But CapitalClass is not just another scholarly leftwing journal. Its editorial board members are elected representatives of a democratic membership organisation. This organisation the Conference of Socialist Economists was founded in 1970 with the aim of fostering the materialist critique of capitalism in the Marxist tradition through nonsectarian debate and discussion. Individual subscribers to CapitalClass become members of the Conference of Socialist Economists with the right to vote at the AGM elect members to the executive committee and editorial board and influence policy. Members are encouraged to set up CSE local groups and participate in and initiate discussions and debates about both theoretical understanding and practical action.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.
