THE
KIPLING JOURNAL




The Kipling Journal, house magazine of the Kipling Society, is sent quarterly to all our current subscribing members. Its contributions to learning since 1927 have earned it a high reputation. It has published many important items by Kipling not readily found elsewhere, and a vast quantity of valuable historical, literary, and bibliographical commentary by authorities in their field.

In the academic study of Kipling, no serious scholar overlooks the Journal's wealth of data. The entire run since 1927 has been comprehensively indexed so that authors and titles of articles can be searched on-line, We have also scanned the backnumbers to make the texta available on-line, together with a word-seach facility. (see below)
Scores of libraries and English Faculties, in a dozen countries, receive the Journal as corporate members of the Society. However, though scholarly in general tendency, it is not an austerely academic production. It aims to entertain as well as to inform. This is both necessary and easy. It is necessary because our membership is as representative of the general reader as of the university researcher. It is easy because there exists an inexhaustible reservoir of engrossing material, thanks to the great volume and variety of Kipling's writings; the scope of his travels, acquaintance, and correspondence; the diversity of his interests and influence; the scale of the events he witnessed; the exceptional fame he attracted in his lifetime; and the international attention he continues to attract.


The Editor of the Kipling Journal publishes membership news, Society events, and the texts of talks given by invited speakers. In addition, he is happy to receive letters and articles from readers.

These may be edited and publication is not guaranteed. A page holds under 500 words, so articles of 5000 words, often needing preface, notes and illustrations, may be hard to accommodate quickly.
Letters of crisp comment, under 1000 words, and articles between 1000 and 4000 words are especially welcome. Email to davpag@yahoo.co.uk .

As with other literary societies, contributors are not paid; their reward is the appearance of their work in a periodical of repute.


The Secretary of the Society arranges distribution of the Journal, and holds an attractive stock of back numbers for sale. Click here for the contents of the latest edition of the Journal.
