Missing periodicals[edit]

Off the top of my head, "national" papers or mags that were around in Britain in the 80s and 90s that aren't included yet are:

  • Counter-Information
  • Organise (from ACF/AF)
  • Direct Action (from DAM/Solfed)
  • Resistance (ACF/AF)

I can't remember the name of the mag that London ABC published.

  • Solidarity was before by time but was well known.

There was also

  • Worker's Solidarity from Ireland.

Most of these organisations are still going and should be able to help with when the mags started. And some exchanged with continental groups and might be able to help with other journal names. --Peter cohen 18:26, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Ok. I added all those except WS (since it is just on issue #3). Thanks! Now someone needs to write articles on all those publications... - N1h1l 19:51, 20 June 2007 (UTC)
That's a renumbering WS was certainly around before then [1]. Unfortunately that doesn't give the start date. Similarly DA ia a renumbering. It was around as a paper in the 80s. I've put in reroutes to the publishers articles where such exist. I'm spending too much time on Wiki at present and trying to control it, but I'm prepared to contact the KSL some time next month to try to find out when some of these mags started.--Peter cohen 10:20, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

INFOrm from Stockholm. Started December 1989 and was published (by various organisations) until at least 2005. Arbetaren[2] and Anarkistisk tidskrift (ISSN 1101-2897) since 1990(?). // Liftarn

Dielo Truda was a periodical as well as a group. They put out somewhere around 45 issues I think. Murderbike 17:39, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Bah! I just noticed that Solideridad Obrera is missing, as well as needing an article. I'll try to fix that. Murderbike 21:27, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
  • It's definitely still missing some of the 19th/early 20th century publications. I added a couple, Die Freiheit and The Firebrand / Free Society. --Lquilter (talk) 20:16, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
  • There was also an anarchafeminist journal put out about ten years ago, short-lived I think, but perhaps notable in the context of anarchafeminism. Bad Attitude, maybe? (Not the lesbian SM mag.) Out of England ... anybody else have info on that one? --Lquilter (talk) 20:24, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
Anyone know enough French to be able to figure out when Alternative libertaire was founded so it can go in the list? Murderbike (talk) 20:16, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
1991, feel free to add. - Jmabel | Talk 01:56, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

I'd add the Spanish anarchist magazine Bicicleta that was around during the Spanish transition to democracy. Only lasted a few years, but it was an excellent magazine. - Jmabel | Talk 01:55, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Insurrectionary anarchist publications[edit]

Not sure if these count, but

Yeah, I've heard of most of them, though I think only a few are in print form. Does that matter. Can a website be a periodical? Will we list periodicals that may never have an article of their own? Murderbike (talk) 23:33, 24 December 2007 (UTC)


I think that may not be the right word for where anarchist publications are based. It sounds too top-down.

BTW some of the journals rotate editorial committees. I'm thinking particularly of Organise!. I'm changing its base to UK. --Peter cohen 22:12, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Umanità Nova[edit]

I just added this italian paper to the list, but I wasn't sure about one thing. they were shut down from 1922 until 1945, but I didn't really know how to concisely put this in the Dates of Publication box. Who's got an idea? Murderbike (talk) 23:47, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Hi Mb -- Try: "Year-Year; Year-Year", e.g., "1920-22; 1945-present". It's as concise as one can be and still be accurate, I think. ... One question: Why are they considered the same journal and not, for instance, an "in honor of" or "following in the tradition of"? Resumed by same people or association? Using same resources / ownership of name? Something else? --Lquilter (talk) 20:19, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
I've used line breaks to reflect the hiatus. Skomorokh confer 18:53, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

technical layout issue[edit]

I note that the @ template starts running over the table when the screen gets smaller -- not ridiculously small but, say, half-size on my 14" 1280x screen using firefox. That's probably something that can be fixed. I might try to look at it over the next weeks but if someone else gets there first I won't complain. --Lquilter (talk) 20:22, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

I've switched templates to the horizontal footer version, so this should be ok now. Skomorokh confer 18:49, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Golos Truda[edit]

I discussed what else could be added with a friend of mine a couple of weeks back. I was able to find the details for Die Ziegel Brenner quite easilly.

He also mentioned Golos Truda (The Voice of Labour) a syndicalist journal connected with Voline and GP Maximov. It seems to have had a complicated history being edited by ex-pat Russians in the US then they upped and went to Petrograd in 1917 where it became the organ of the Petrograd Union of Anarcho-Syndicalist Propaganda. My tinkering with the web hasn't come up with very clear publication details. THere also seems to be a journal of the same name published im Moscow - I don't know whether this is the same publication with yet a new centre. Anyone with access to resources that might clarify the details?

My friend also mentioned Overthrow and Xtra which I think may both be British active in the last 20 years or so. Anyone got details of these?--Peter cohen (talk) 19:48, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

I've contacted the Kate Sharpley Library to see if they have info on this. Also for details of Direct Action's earlier runs.--Peter cohen (talk) 16:10, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

Additional details[edit]

Okay, I've changed the comment on Der ZiegleBrenner to a footnote. I think we should consider more details on a numner of other entries. In particular:

  • Non-English titles should be accompanied with a translation.
  • Journals produced by orgaisation e.g. Organise! should have that organisation's name in the base column.

Comments?--Peter cohen (talk) 11:31, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Good call. - N1h1l (talk) 13:08, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
Fine with me. Murderbike (talk) 15:22, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Dresdner Zeitung[edit]

May Uprising in Dresden says that this paper was anarchist and had Bakunin as a contributor. I've tried googling for dates and in doing so have noticed that it is generally not disgused as anarchist. For example, [3] describes it as being the "leading newspaper of Saxon democracy" at the time and[4] calls it left-liberal, albeit referring to a time 60 years later. Anyone got sources on this?--Peter cohen (talk) 12:56, 23 April 2009 (UTC)

Z magazine[edit]

z magazine is a very popular and well known magazine in the united states, yet it is not listed here. , they have blogs, zines, and magazines. I get a print magazine each month from them. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:14, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Are you sure it's anarchist and not merely leftist?  Skomorokh  15:12, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
  • Hard to pin down, I'd call it non-sectarian leftist, including some anarchists but also a lot who are not. - Jmabel | Talk 01:55, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Land and Liberty (newspaper)[edit]

Should this orphan be included in the list? JeepdaySock (AKA, Jeepday) 16:20, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

RfC on journal list names[edit]

There is an RfC regarding the standardization of journal lists names. Please comment at Talk:List of journals#RFC. Headbomb {talk / contribs / physics / books} 01:35, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
