The International Journal of Cuban Studies has been relaunched and redesigned with a Special edition titled “ALBA and the future of Caribbean and Latin American Integration”.
The Journal is a quarterly, peer-reviewed academic journal providing a publication opportunity for scholarly work on Cuba and related topics. It encourages submissions from the whole range of disciplines and from multidisciplinary perspectives.
It is published in English (Spanish articles will be translated) by Pluto Journals on behalf of the International Institute for the Study of Cuba at London Metropolitan University.
The publication aims to provide a forum for objective investigation and informed debate on the nature of the Cuban experience: its historical context; its international image and relationships; its scientific, cultural and social achievements; and its future orientation.
Institutional subscriptions in print cost $240 and includes the online version at no additional cost. The online only version costs $190 per year.
Individual subscriptions in print cost $90 and includes the online version at no additional cost. The online only version costs $65 per year.
However, IP addresses from Cuba are allowed to access the Journal online for free.

The research and consultancy Centre publishes the Journal and provides objective and reliable research on the Caribbean and Latin America, supports the provision of high quality courses and research supervision in Caribbean and Latin American Studies within the university and provides consultancy, and educational tourism services as well as seeking educational collaboration projects with partners in the region.
International Institute for the Study of Cuba
In October, the Institute for the Study of Cuba will be re-established as a not-for-profit membership association and will be open to the public to join.
The objective of the new organization will be to keep the International Journal of Cuban Studies going through raising funds and helping to raise its profile through pubic events. Membership of the Institute will include an online subscription to the Journal and free entry to all events.
