An important announcement has been made regarding the future of Locke Studies.

The John Locke Society will take over ownership of the journal in 2018. The journal will be moved to Western University and Benjamin Hill (Western) will be taking over as interim editor for 2018-19. A newly-formed Editorial Board will appoint an editor to serve a five-year term beginning in 2020.
