Review a book for the ASR!

The Adam Smith Review is a refereed multidisciplinary scholarly annual review, sponsored by the International Adam Smith Society, which provides a unique forum for vigorous debate and the highest standards of scholarship on all aspects of Adam Smith’s works, his place in history, and the significance of his writings for the modern world.

The ASR aims to facilitate debate between scholars working from different disciplinary and theoretical perspectives. It is intended as a resource for Adam Smith scholarship in the widest sense, and the Editor welcomes suggestions and proposals for future developments.


Submissions to the Adam Smith Review are invited from any theoretical, disciplinary or interdisciplinary approach (max. 10,000 words, in English). Contributors are asked to make their arguments accessible to a wide multidisciplinary readership without sacrificing high standards of argument and scholarship.

Submission to the Adam Smith Review will be taken to imply that the work is original and unpublished, and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Submission guidelines can be found here: ASRGuidelinesforAuthors1_000

It is editorial policy that interdisciplinary articles will be sent to referees with different disciplinary expertise; submitted articles will be double-blind refereed; and commissioned articles will be single-blind refereed by members of the Editorial Board.

Proposals to translate into English significant works relating to Adam Smith published in other languages are welcomed.

Offers to edit symposia are also invited.

Submissions are welcomed as an email file attachment to the Editor at Alternatively submissions may be sent by post to the Editor:

Department of Political Science
University of California-San Diego
La Jolla, California 92093-0521

Submitted papers are welcomed in any format but accepted papers will need to conform to the ASR guidelines for authors.

Current Issue

Volume 12 of the Adam Smith Review was published in 2020 and was mailed to members in early 2021. This twelfth volume brings together leading scholars from across several disciplines and contributes to two particular themes. First, there is a focus on Adam Smith’s moral and political philosophy, exploring how Smith’s approach finds expression in both abstract philosophy and practical judgment. Second, there is a focus on epistemology, economics, and law, with innovative interpretations of Smithian theories.
