Counterculture Studies is an international, online, peer-reviewed journal. It arises out of the recent explosion of interest in manifestations of countercultural practice in art, architecture, design, music and everyday life. The focus is on the Long Sixties as the "high" period of rebellion, but the journal will also carry material related to legacies of the counterculture and aspects of contemporary countercultural protest. The journal will contain a mixture of print and audio-visual material by academic researchers and cultural workers. Scholarly articles will be peer-reviewed but the journal is open to and, indeed, welcomes and encourages, general contributions that do not conform to rigid academic expectations. The journal thus straddles the world of the academy and the world of the counterculture itself, something reflected in the composition of the editorial committee and advisory board.
