Peace & Justice Journals

The Blueprint for Social Justice is published monthly by Loyola New Orleans and features one well-informed but not academic article per issue. Topics have ranged from poverty to race to war to films on social justice themes.

Origins is produced weekly by the Catholic New Service and provides documents from leaders of the Church, including encyclicals and pastoral letters but speeches and homilies as well. Publishes semi-annual indexes of contents.

The newsletter for the Center of Concern in Washington, DC, a Catholic social justice “think tank,” is monthly and contains good short articles on issues of global justice.

The Journal for Peace and Justice Studies is a scholarly quarterly containing articles on a wide range of topics.

The Journal of Catholic Social Thought is a very substantial scholarly journal, published twice a year, each issue focusing on a particular theme.

The Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning is the premiere outlet for scholarship on service-learning.

All of these journals come recommended by Dr. Roger Bergman and can be found in his office in the Admin building room 425A.
