This article is about the magazine. For the movement, see Chartism.

Chartist is a bi-monthly democratic socialist magazine which has been published in Britain since the 1970s.

The magazine's editorial policy is firmly aligned with what was once termed the soft left of the Labour Party, supporting such causes as the Grassroots Alliance slate in NEC elections and the Save The Labour Party initiative. Its readership is not confined, however, to any one wing of the party, there being no left/right divide on many of the topics – such as electoral reform – written about in the magazine. Chartist defines its policy as being "to promote debate amongst people active in radical politics about the contemporary relevance of democratic socialism across the spectrum of politics, economics, science, philosophy, art, interpersonal relations – in short, the whole realm of social life".

The current editor is Mike Davis and the magazine's producer is David Floyd. Other members of the Editorial Board are Paul Anderson, Anna Bluston, Duncan Bowie, Peter Chalk, Don Flynn, Roger Gillham, Peter Kenyon (Treasurer), Gerard Killoran, Peter Latham, Frank Lee, Charmain Moran, John Morgan, Pete Smith, Rosamund Stock, John Sunderland, Andy Morton and Chris Wearmouth.
