Dear All

The correspondence on ERA ranked journals has so far ignored Cultural  
Studies Review  which has been awarded an 'A' listing. We are also an  
international journal that is published and managed within Australia  
but outside the American and UK publishing houses such as Taylor and  
Francis, Sage and Routledge. We are very proud of our editorial  
standards and put a great deal of very hard work into maintaining and  
expanding our intellectual focus and international ethos.

We have been seeking a direct association with CSAA for some time but  
have been hampered by our lack of flexibility with pricing that the  
larger publishers can offer. That is, so far CSAA members have been  
able to get more copies of Continuum per year than we could supply of  
Cultural Studies Review for the same price. But this should not mean  
that we are not seen as a key Australian Cultural Studies journal  
that publishes for this Cultural Studies community and depends upon  
it for our extensive reviewing and refereeing work. We will continue  
to seek closer alignment with the CSAA.

Could we please therefore take this opportunity to thank all of those  
on the CSAA list and beyond who have enabled Cultural Studies Review  
to gain an 'A' listing because you have been willing to give so much  
of your often unrecognised time to the tasks of writing considered  
referees reports, responding positively to requests for reviews and  
for coming forward with suggestions for focussed editions and  
changes. It is upon your work that any journal reputation is built.

Warm regards
Katrina Schlunke
