On the heels of yesterday’s introduction to critiques, many students are probably delving into critical international relations and critical security studies literature for the first time. In an effort to improve the quality of the critique research that occurs in preparation for next season’s debates, I would like to compile a crowdsourced list of the best critical IR journals. Below the fold you will find my initial contributions; please post additional journals that I have omitted but which you believe to be high-quality sources of debate evidence in the comments.
The list was last updated on July 12, 2010.

Good luck with your critique research!
