A Privileged Source of Information



This Century's Review was launched on 15 January 2006. There will be four issues a year and each issue will have a key word that serves as a unifying theme for the multidisciplinary contributions. Our articles are specially commissioned and range from politics, history and law to science and, above all, culture. Each contribution will appear in the author’s own native language as well as in translation, as one of our aims is to promote linguistic variety.


This is a long-term cultural project with solid foundations. A team of full-time editors and assistants is involved daily in selecting authors and editing their texts, and in fund-raising activities.


This Century's Review has chosen to focus on broader topics than those found in daily news or current affairs publications in order to ensure that each edition remains relevant long after its original publication. Furthermore, we do not deliver political propaganda. However, whilst the magazine does not have a political affiliation, we reject the idea of an apolitical approach. We encourage the publication of articles that take a clear stance in the international political debate.


This Century's Review is a privileged source of information, where the privileges refer mainly to the following:


1. Independence

This Century’s Review is privately financed and is independent of political parties or economic lobbies. The articles are selected on the basis of the quality of their intellectual content and the brilliance of their argumentation.


2. Direct Sources of Information

We have our own sources of information in all continents and give experts a forum in which to coherently present and argue their new ideas. By going directly to the source, we are able to ensure an independence not offered by traditional press agencies. Independent journals such as ours are increasingly offering serious alternatives to the established media. This Century’s Review is a demanding and direct response to this phenomenon.


3. Competent Authors

The international character of This Century’s Review shapes both its structure and content. The authors are experts from all over the world. They are relatively young – most around 35 years old – and many of them winners of internationally recognised prizes. They have good publication records and are affiliated to international organisations, prestigious universities and renowned cultural institutions. It speaks for This Century’s Review that we have been able to ensure their support and commitment. Their approach is often complex but analytical knowledge always demands reflection and time. This assumption and their passionate work make This Century’s Review possible.
